Aran Khanna


Aran Khanna is a student-developer, blogger, and student at Harvard who is working to understand the consequences of the increasing role of technology in our lives, particularly in the realm of personal privacy. Aran builds tools that empower users to discover for themselves the consequences of the digital footprint they are leaving. Notably Aran’s work on disclosing the dangers of default location sharing in Facebook Messenger spurred Facebook to remove the feature from Messenger. It also prompted Facebook to rescind Aran’s internship offer, raising questions about how social media companies respond to privacy issues.
