Ok<br>
¬† So here is a good read from the land of tinfoil hats and hacking¬† air<br>
gapped openbsd laptops via sound.<br>

So the tldr parts , ad tracking via ultrasound beacons . Imagine you<br>
install the wallmart app to get the 25% off coupon but it's tracking you<br>

<br>
Interesting non the less .<br>

yea pretty terrifying that adtech has succeded in normalizing the idea that to use the internet is to consent to living a surveillance state. the worst part - imho - is the fact that most of people who i've worked with in this industry a) don't realize they are creating a surveillance state or b) think it's a good thing.<br><br></blockquote><div><br></div><div>Just had the interesting-to-me thought that audio tracking works over voice and videoconferencing links, no "internet" necessary.</div><div><br></div><div>If stray dogs start taking an uncommon interest in you, turn off your phone.</div><div><br></div></div></div></div>
