"Your Phone Is Listening and it's Not Paranoia" – https://www.vice.com/en_uk/article/wjbzzy/your-phone-is-listening-and-its-not-paranoia #Privacy
"it’s really not that different to advertisers looking at your browsing history."
And what the heck do they have to do with my browsing history? The article is really interesting (hence I boosted your toot), but I strongly disagree with its conclusion: "It’s not ideal, but I don’t think it poses an immediate threat to most people." It's a definite threat to our privacy – unless we've conciently opted in to that. I don't remember ever having been asked to.
@IzzyOnDroid I agree. His conclusion is a bit worrying, it's never something that we should have to accept.
@hund ah, now I get it. The conclusion was sarcasm, and meant to say: "most people don't care anyway". That would sadly be true.
@IzzyOnDroid Oh! I see. I need to read it agan. :P
@hund I don't know if it was really meant that way. But only this way it makes sense to me in that context.
@hund Shame about the reassuring ending. I can't believe people listen to this and don't imagine what a bad actor might do with this information or how the incoming information can be altered.
@malin I agree, it's weird how some just accept the unacceptable. :/
@hund I’m having a difficult time believing Apple gives apps free rein to process all audio that is recorded and discarded while waiting for a “hey Siri”. It just makes no sense
