Ovia is a pregnancy tracking app that takes in a creepy amount of personal data from its users. This data can be accessed by companies to track the overall health and related trends of their workers.
I’m sure you don’t need to much of a held hand to work out why this is concerning.
Activision Blizzard incentivizes its employees to use fitness and health apps, Ovia included, and executive Milt Ezzard justifies it in the creepiest way possible.
Just another day in corporate datamongering, but shuddersome nonetheless.
