SXSW 2022

Introducing Permission Slip by Consumer Reports


With new privacy laws, consumers have gained rights to access, delete, and stop the sale of their data. But exercising these rights is hard and time-consuming. That’s why Consumer Reports—the 80 year old nonprofit member organization— is launching Permission Slip. In this session, we’ll walk through a brand new service we like to describe as “Tinder for your personal data.” Just swipe left on a data broker to access, delete, or stop the sale of your data. We’ll demo the newly launched Permission Slip service and walk through how lawyers, technologists, and designers are developing a new ecosystem of tools that help consumers take control of their data.
