Podcast: Privacy Updates from WWDC 2022: SKAdNetwork expansion and Fingerprinting (with Alex Bauer)

My guest for this episode of the MDM Podcast is Alex Bauer, the Head of Product and Market Strategy at Branch, the mobile measurement and linking company. We speak about the revelations from Apple’s WWDC conference last week that are most important for mobile advertisers: 1) the expansion of Apple’s SKAdNetwork measurement framework, 2) Apple’s prohibition of aggregated measurement solutions, and 3) Apple’s very clear and strident proclamation that Fingerprinting is Never Allowed.

This interview assumes quite a bit of knowledge on the part of the listener. For background, see these articles:
