Default Advertisment: Beware

So I googled a certain outdoor product and wouldn't you know that one of the top 5 advertisements that we have to scroll past was the same product I googled. Tin hat wearers beware, PFF is tracking you. May be making my exit soon. Carry on. BTW: wtf fishes out of a mazda 5?

When I joined this forum after the fishthebridge takeover I'm pretty sure it was run on dial up from a netgear router covered in spilled beer and popcorn kernals. Looking too much like the facebook for my likings.

I donít have any advertisements at all. I access the forum with an iPhone through Tapatalk, however.

On a side note- I am 100% convinced that our phones listen to our conversations. This has happened many times with both me and my coworkers. Weíll all be talking about something, not googling, and later that day or the next day we will all see ads on various platforms for what we were talking about. Has been tested a few times.

Whatever. Iíve got nothing to hide. I read 1984 in high school.

Saw this at work earlier during a meeting. Worth a watch.

i hear ya, but the internet has come a long way since the early days. I started here in 2004 i think, heck, one thing for sure, there will never be an alexa or any similar device in our home. but I assume our phones, computers and tv's listen to us.... creepy but it allstarted years ago....

PFF might be, but my ISP isn't. I use a vpn to stop them from nosing into my business. As far as my phone, it has a vpn on it too, I also keep the data connection turned off as well as the bt and wf until I need it. I'll probably load the tor browser before long tho. Supposed to be the chit.

I was wondering why escort services were being advertised on PFF!?! Now I know, and knowing is half the battle...

It's your browser. Yes, smart phones listen all the time as do your smart TVs. And your smart robot vacuum cleaners uploaded your floorplan. Welcome to the internet of things. If all of this corporate surveillance bothers you support candidates that push for privacy and a digital bill of rights. There are candidates on both sides of the isle who care about this. Or you can blame PFF...

There's built in tracking systems everywhere now. My 2008 Chevy truck can be tracked, they can shut it down if they want to. You are being tracked on your smart phone. Some tv sets can spy on you. Cameras are around with facial recognition. It's a brave new world.
