What Could Go Wrong?

What's the worst case scenario for your data?

Fitbit does a decent job with privacy and de-identifies the data it collects so it's hopefully not personally identifiable. Depending on the kind of data, it is pretty easy for hackers to de-anonymize data sets and track down individual’s patterns, especially with location data. So, be aware you are strapping on a deivce with a built-in microphone that tracks your location, sleep patterns, and more. That's a bunch of personal information gathered in one small place.

How Does It Share Your Data?

Where is your data going? Who has access to it?

Fitbit can share de-identified data with anyone. Fitbit strips your data of personal information and then combines it with other user data and can share it with anyone.

Good Things

Why should you use it?

  • De-indentifies the data it collects and receives from you, so it is not personally identifiable.
  • Bug bounty program, which means if anyone finds a security issue, Fitbit discloses it responsibily and fiscally. 

Bad Things

What are the downsides?

  • A lot of personal information in one place, such as location, heart rate, sleep patterns, and more.
  • Google is buying Fitbit, who has a lot of sensitive information, and Google has a lot of data on people.

Final Thoughts

Fitbit only shares de-identified user data with third parties. However, it has been found to be relatively easy to recover personally identifiable information from this data. This means a hacker could gain access to your location, heart rate, sleep patterns, and more. Your information could be seriously at risk by using this product.
