Would you like to see your own metadata? Now maybe you can!

Nice work by SMH’s Ben Grubb, who took Telstra to task over his mobile phone metadata:

“… spies, councils, the RSPCA and others could gain access to my phone’s metadata but I couldn’t, as Telstra was refusing me access.”

Turns out Telstra breached Privacy Act, and the win has the former Deputy Privacy Commissioner for NSW, Anna Johnston, saying

“This is a ground-breaking decision.”
