Could your phone be spying on you
« on: June 08, 2018, 06:36:21 PM »
According to this article it might be hearing more than you want it to. Anyone ever find ads for items they were talking about recently?

No, you’re not being paranoid, your phone really IS listening to you
Those oddly pertinent ads on your timeline aren’t just a coincidence, your phone is listening to everything you say
In fact, according to Dr Peter Henway, a senior security consultant for cybersecurity firm Asterix, your phone is always listening. Technically, your phone only records what’s being said when you issue trigger words like “Hey Siri” or “Okay Google” but, because it needs to listen out for said keywords, it always has its digital ear listening out.

This is one of the scary things about the use of cellular phones and other gadgets. You don't know if your personal information are still safe. So as much as possible, we need to be cautious when sharing anything online.

Too true Sam!

Now "eff book" has filed for a patent to stick it to you even more.

As the filing states:

Examples of image data of a user include profile photos of the user, e.g., profile photos of the same user on different online systems, e.g., FACEBOOK.TM. and INSTAGRAM.TM

The technology builds on Facebook's "household audience" ad tech unveiled in June, which allows brands the option of targeting specific people in a household. The patent makes clear Facebook's intent to target entire families with more clickable ads than it currently serves, stating:

“Existing solutions of content delivery to a target household are not effective ... Without such knowledge of a user’s household features, most of the content items that are sent to the user are poorly tailored to the user and are likely ignored by the user.”

"


More scary stuff from the people who only have $ signs in their eyes.
