Your Phones Eavesdrop On You

Usually I turn off cookies on my phone browser when surfing. I only turn them on when I have to log into a site. So I forget to turn them off and several and ads pop up immediately. Usually ads that pop up are related to searches made and key words that are mentioned in texts and emails which your wireless carrier ducks up and sells.
This time I know for a fact that I never discussed any of these things via physical phone input. However, the only association I had with them was in three separate conversations with my kids. All I can conclude is that my conversation was picked up from the microphone on my phone.
I am so sick of this ducking bullbubblegum. I really can't wait for a big ducking Internet EMP.

I just use my phone as a *gasp* phone.
If I'm not using it, it is turned off.
I know, that's sacrilegious, but I dare to be different.
Don't worry, when they roll out 5G your/ours current phone will be obsolete. 5G will be a privacy nightmare.
My favorite phone that I like to pop my Sim card in is my trusty Nokia 8890 circa 2002. It will phone call and SMS but not much else. It's got to the Snake game and alarm clock.

I don't get ads on my phone, presumably because I only use it for talking to people, sending text, and getting directions. Reading this thread makes me glad I turn it off when I go to bed.:eek::rolleyes:

That phone will be a door stop when they roll out 5G. The one they give as a replacement will be a certified listening device that will eavesdrop even when it is turned off, like many already do now. 5G will be a privacy game changer, for those who don't think things are bad now.

I believe this as well.

I was in a meeting of our local watershed council a couple years ago where we had a guest speaker discussing the local flora and fauna.

During the presentation, the topic turned to discussion of the "rough skinned newt". I wasn't exactly sure what a rough skinned newt was so I reached for my smart phone.

I typed in "rough s" and it immediately prompted up "rough skinned newt". Not "rough skin" , or "rough sports", or "rough sex"........rough skinned newt.

Tin foil hat aside, I truly think the phone listens. :D
