You might have notice sleek new kiosks peppered throughout the streets of Brooklyn. LINK NYC is providing stations throughout the city that charge phones, and provide wifi access, all for free.

Cyber activists, tech professionals, and even community members have concerns about the new kiosks, however. A major consideration for these individuals is whether personal data will be collected and sold to businesses without the consent of the users. LINK NYC has stated that they do not track or store online activity, and will never sell or share personal information unless lawfully required to do so. BRIC TV met with folks from Re-Think Link NYC to learn more about the specifics of their concerns.
