Digital Breadcrumbs: An Urban Fairytale

This story is reminiscent of our childhood children’s fairytale when Hansel and Gretel leave a trail of breadcrumbs to find their way home. Fast-forward to the hustle and bustle of London’s digital world, we turn our focus on a girl named Amanda and a trail of digital breadcrumbs she leaves behind. But, what exactly do we know about these trails? How are we creating them? Will they “lead us back home” to safety and the world of convenience or does it actually pose a real threat to privacy and safety? Listen to find out.
