Privacy Concerns Raised About New York City’s Free Wi-Fi
The New York Civil Liberties Union has issued a statement expressing privacy concerns about LinkNYC, New York City’s free public Wi-Fi that officially launched last month. The free service sees old phone booths replaced with LinkNYC hubs that act as wireless routers that provide fiber Internet to anyone with a wireless device. LinkNYC is offered through a partnership between the city and CityBridge, a consortium of companies behind the LinkNYC system.
In the statement issued by the NYCLU, the civil liberties organization raised privacy concerns on two fronts. First, it says that because users must submit their email addresses to use the service, and since those addresses are retained by CityBridge along with the user’s browsing history, LinkNYC is an attractive target for hackers looking to steal personal information.
The second serious concern NYCLU has with the LinkNYC is that it is open to "unwarranted NYPD surveillance."
