App will protect confidential data when crossing borders

Three Shatter Secrets app screens

Computer scientists at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science have found a novel method to help travellers protect sensitive information from border control agents.

The system is being developed into an app called “Shatter Secrets” by Erinn Atwater, who is the research director of the not-for-profit Open Privacy, an organization dedicated to understanding, researching and serving the privacy needs of marginalized and highly targeted at-risk communities.
