Stanford Shows Private Information Is Accessible via Phone Metadata

Stanford University announced the official release of a study, “Evaluating the Privacy Properties of Telephone Metadata,” which shows that telephone metadata (e.g., numbers, times, and lengths of phone communications) can reveal “a surprising amount of personal detail.” Researchers aimed to fill the knowledge gaps in the National Security Agency’s (NSA) metadata-collection program, and they found out from their work with more than 800 volunteers that sensitive information, such as health problems and gun ownership, is discoverable by monitoring only the metadata of calls, not their content.

For more information, read the press release.
