On this edition of Digital Planet, we discuss BBC News’ use of the Tor network, Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra, and more…

This week we are discussing the BBC’s decision to make BBC News available through the Tor network. The browser can obscure who is using it and what data is being accessed, which can help people avoid government surveillance and censorship.

Plus, Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg came under heavy fire recently at a hearing to discuss the company’s launch of their cryptocurrency, Libra. A whole host of issues have caused companies like MasterCard, Visa and eBay to pull out of the collaboration.

UNICEF is the first international charity organisation to accept donations in cryptocurrency. Chris Fabian, co-founder UNICEF’s innovation unit, explains why.

Finally, Dr Yasamin Mostofi from the University of California has created a way to use WI-FI signals to “see” through walls. The group has shown that it is possible to monitor how WI-FI signals bounce off our bodies and compare this signature pattern to a video of the same person walking. This could be a new tool for police to determine, for example, whether a known criminal is in a given building.
