NO...it is NOT "this". None of you can show me ANYTHING that tells me that anyone has agreed to allow these websites to monitor private verbal conversations that occur in the supposed privacy of one's home or car - NOT in any written communication done on a computer using ANY program, OR in any telephone conversation -- not that they should be recording and monitoring THOSE either.

You are willfully ignoring what the issue is. The issue is that they are LISTENING - LISTENING - to PRIVATE conversations between individuals in a PRIVATE environment, while NOT using a computer or phone. They have many of our environments actively MICROPHONE'D.

SHOW me WHERE YOU agreed to this?

I think the spying systems are far more advanced than people realize. Yes, they CAN do all these things, and they'll be doing more in the future.

I would love to see services that come about where people can rremove chips or spying devices from these machines or we can figure out how to block them. We have an absolute right to privacy - only slaves have no privacy.

Maybe it's time to respond to all these ads thanking them kindly and telling them we'll now never touch their products with a ten foot pole?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 50614745



Not a bad idea, but selling stuff to us is only one aspect of the system. The fact that they do it at all and retain this information is wrong as who knows what they might use it for some day. When we say or do something they don't like are they going to pull up or alter a private conversation to make it appear we have committed, or are going to commit, some crime? We don't know yet how bad this is going to get, this is the beginning.

Please spread the awareness. Stopping this spying must start with the awareness that it's going on. And NO....it's NOT something ANY OF US AGREED TO.

I have a feeling something is going on. I've thought SOMETHING was listening to me on numerous occasions.

While playing the single player campaing in Battlefield 4 (PC) you hear the word "Tombstone" often in some missions because that is what your team is called.

Anyways, after I stopped playing sometime last week, I started seeing Tombstone pizza adds pop up, which I thought was really strange.

If it's a coincidence, it's a strange one.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2075492



That is a strange coincidence. I think much of this monitoring is robotized, meaning it's not necessarily any humans actively listening (although they can probably do that or retrieve information if they want) and that they react to whatever they think "key" words are, in the cases we've discussed like yours, for commercial purposes. I'm usre other key words or phrases are being noted and responded to. I'd keep an eye on the various systems you use and see how many of these coincidences come up.

I think there are probably ways for them to see us through the screen,

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 50235673


Think about it...we can disable our audio and webcams and cover them up...

There has to be other ways for them to spy on us that we are not aware of..and I am sure they do it.

If they can do it with xbox kinect, they can do it with anything

so, more than likely, there is some sort of sensor in our computer screens that we are not aware of and will never be able to disable. :(

Re: Audio Spying on Your Computers - Does Facebook LISTEN to us? Be Aware.
on my children's laptops I physically opened the cases and disconnected the webcams and mics.

I started doing this after seeing a news article on schools spying on their students using school provided laptops.
the schools could actually control the cam and see your children in their bedrooms getting undressed etc.

alternatively, some black tape on cam and some crap headphones with the cord cut from the plug and the plug inserted into the mic socket will suffice.

buy your own Web domain and set up a mail server on something like a raspberry pi, and stop feeding Google and the likes your information.

like random stuff on Facebook and add random people from around the world to throw off their profiling etc.

errr... apparently there's no need for webcams or microphones (or i have some hidden in my hardware i don't know about, unlikely)

your thoughts are somehow read.

bump

I'm beginning to believe this more and more.

I was having a conversation last night where I was informed of something I had never even known existed. Someone else's field, nothing I work with, etc. I didn't search for it afterward, and nothing was posted to social media. Just a passing mention in a conversation.

This morning, I logged on Facebook to work on some Pages I manage and there was a suggested post for the very thing mentioned the night before. No computers were in the room, just cell phones.

Gurl, they probably don't listen to me much. What they would hear is a lot of praying. I doubt people who spy are interested in that, but who really knows?

And, no, I'm not okay with it.

I leave my phone next to the radio and play Bible radio all day. I also have wild sex with the hubby with the phone near by.

I don't get any strange ads.
