Football world cup, Qatar morality laws & burner phones 

According to Politico, the Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (#CNIL), the French data protection authority, advises #football fans traveling to #qatar for the world cup to get burner phones or use old phones that have been factory reset.

Foreigners are required to d/l two apps: Hayya, the official world cup app, and Ehteraz, for COVID tracing.

These two apps could potentially be used as a form of #spyware.

In addition, CNIL recommends special care when taking photos, videos as they might infringe the local, strict morality laws.
