Watch 2000 mules. Your cell phone is spying on you.

Ever notice how the ads on the sidebar of YouTube suddenly are related to something you were just talking about recently?

Yes and I can go back farther, back in the old days, there were several programs that ran off the fed lines. One was called Predator , and the other was called Carnivore. Both picked up words, phrases and sentence structure. Big Brother has been spying on us for a very long time

Hell, if you marched in any movement in the 60's, Hoover and the FBI started a file on you.
Would not stop them from drafting you . Hmmmm, a damn hippie subversive is now a private and not a security risk. Seems counter intuitive.
You all have been tracked for decades. As soon as you got a SSN
Only a rumor. I have full faith and confidence in my government... just in case they follow OTT

Considering the number of people that have the Tik Tok on their phones, location and identity is hardly a concern these days. The sad thing is just because Bad Orange Man brought up the (legitimate and now proven) security issues, the media killed the story, SM killed the story and people continue on.
And it's a definite that your devices spy on your conversations. Just like your router spies on your web traffic.

It takes only 4 location points from your cellular device to determine your identity with 95% accuracy.

This article was published 9 years ago: https://phys.org/news/2013-03-easy-identity-cell.html

They already have your identity. You're a customer!


Read the article. Better yet, read the paper. What they have shown there is a theoretical "estimation of privacy". I don't have the time to look for the scientific papers rebutting their nonsense, but I'm quite sure they exist.

Nearly every 'ap' you have running on your amrt phones is collecting tons of data ,including GPS data, your pictures, camera control, texts, emails,passwords, account info, web access, etc. and YOU have given them permission to do so.
If you think I'm wrong, watch the Marketplace episode about 3-4 years back, where they show 'how it's done'.

The government doesn’t have the time, money or people to listen to or care about what most of us have to say.
They don't need time, they've spent the money and if or when it becomes necessary they'll have the people search the archives for your data!

Edit to add a general question not directed at jyoutz: do you think the technology that is "listening" and putting up content relevant advertising isn't also capturing all?

I'm not a customer of all that could access my location data, in fact.

Do you have a point besides I don't read and have little capability in searching?
