Designing for new digital rightsRIGHTS

Home privacy settings

Routers can broadcast information. You could set your home router to instruct Uber’s mapping cars whether to store photography of your house or details of your home Wi-Fi.

These privacy settings could be part of how you set up Wi-Fi in your home, giving you the choice about whether you want a company to store and use that information or not. This is an example of how the GDPR’s right to restrict processing might work.
