>Privacy advocates are warning federal authorities of a new threat that uses inaudible, high-frequency sounds to surreptitiously track a person's online behavior across a range of devices, including phones, TVs, tablets, and computers.

>The ultrasonic pitches are embedded into TV commercials or are played when a user encounters an ad displayed in a computer browser. While the sound can't be heard by the human ear, nearby tablets and smartphones can detect it. When they do, browser cookies can now pair a single user to multiple devices and keep track of what TV commercials the person sees, how long the person watches the ads, and whether the person acts on the ads by doing a Web search or buying a product.

>Compared to probabilistic tracking through browser fingerprinting, the use of audio beacons is a more accurate way to track users across devices...The audio beacon enables companies like SilverPush to know which ads the user saw, how long the user watched the ad before changing the channel, which kind of smart devices the individual uses, along with other information that adds to the profile of each user that is linked across devices.
>The only factor that hinders the receipt of an audio beacon by a device is distance and there is no way for the user to opt-out of this form of cross-device tracking. SilverPush’s company policy is to not "divulge the names of the apps the technology is embedded," meaning that users have no knowledge of which apps are using this technology and no way to opt-out of this practice. As of April of 2015, SilverPush’s software is used by 67 apps and the company monitors 18 million smartphones.

What could they possibly gain from this?My opinion of the advertised product isn't expressed in any way.Literally zero useful info is collected, it only means my device picked up some background noise.

Thank god most phones have shit for battery life, otherwise this would be a real possibility.

france was a potential haven for privacy. shaky extradition process, not giving a flying fuck about pressures outside of france itself, etc.

and then the fucking bombing happened.

Removing the rights of civil and regular people does not stop terrorists.

Why do people think making majority of population suffer because you scrub the floor with their human and civil rights (like mass surveillance THAT FAILS TO GET TERRORISTS) would help to get terrorirsts

Where is the logic

Yeah but on the bright side both of those exist in the first place. Glad I weened myself off of Windows a few years back. Wish Google wasn't so nosey though. My 2013 Moto X was probably my favorite phone of all time so far but everything about it was just so intrusive.

Ars loves to propagandize lab proof-of-concepts and real world shit. See the hack that can capture all keyboard clicks (including wired) and badBIOS (which they reference in the article).

I meant to say AS real world. Meaning they make it seem as though it is useful outside with shitloads of interference.
