Cyber stalking: Is your cell phone being used against you?
- by Danielle Leigh
The New York City Mayor's Office to End Domestic and Gender Based Violence is expanding a new program in coordination with students at Cornell Tech and NYU Tandon School of Engineering to combat cyber stalking. The computer program, developed by students and recently put into use at the city's family justice centers, is capable of scanning phones and other mobile devices for signs of stalking. "It's very hard to look at a phone very quickly and figure out whether you are being stalked," said NYU Tandon's Damon McCoy, who has been involved in the development of this new program.
