Hello everyone,

During our call yesterday, Marta from Blockchain very kindly volunteered to compile our privacy comments regarding the Wake-Lock API.


Please review the draft specification and share your views.

To get us started, here are some of the questions raised yesterday:

- If a web application makes a wake-lock request that is implemented by the user agent, what does this mean for other applications that are set to allow access to geolocation, NFC, camera, microphone when the screen is on? 
- Should this feature only be available in secure contexts?
