Disclosures that smartphone apps retrieved smartphone’s users personal contact information without getting explicit permission recently, public start concerning the eruption of digital privacy.


Smartphone being so trendy these days, somehow people using mobile phones to take pictures or videos may bring damage to privacy," Stephen Quinn, the digital development editor of South China Morning Post, said in an assembly Tuesday.


Quinn said Apps inside the smartphones make people not easy to be noticed when someone is trying to take a picture of them. It may trigger a nuisance for other people.


"You may see me reading a note or using a calculator with my smartphone, but in fact I may be taking pictures of you," said Quinn.


However, it is so hard to detect whether someone is trying to take a picture of you. Smartphones are raising popularity now; the situation of unacceptable infringement of our privacy may become fierce.


Quinn thinks technology development of smartphones may increase the possibility of having some breaking news photos though, at the same time, it infringes on personal privacy.


"People care about their privacy. The law is certainly not enough in coping with the issue now. Privacy is not being well-protected," said Quinn.
