Dave Farrington on how much personal spying goes on these days.
Unscrupulous advertisers track our every move online; which website we visit and when, which advertising that is placed before our eyes, which search words we use on Google, and that information is used to build a roving dossier, a personality and personal profile of who we are, where we live, what we do, what we like, and who we know.
It gets worse.
Nearly every device you connect to your home Wi-Fi system phones home with data it collects and it’s not easy to prevent such spying and information transfer, either. Note to Apple: Now would be a good time for a safe home router with controls to manage IoT devices.
