This MacVoices Live! conversation started out with a discussion of chat apps and privacy. The panel of David Ginsburg, Jeff Gamet, Mark Fuccio, Guy Serle, Jim Rea, Kelly Guimont, and Andrew Orr discussed what they are using and why it is so difficult to get others to switch to secure options. Open source vs. platform specific, the risks of giving a chat app access to your contacts, and more spark a lively debate. The topic of why so many ignore basic security starts up as this part wraps up. (Part 1)
