RE: Free WiFi Could End Up Costing You More Than You Think

in #interent3 years ago

I wish there was something other than the two options of either unplug or be tracked. Computers and cell phones aren't going anywhere and although we should be cautious of spending too much time on them, we shouldn't have to shut them off just to have some privacy. And they're still tracking even when data is off - they'll just upload the data later.

Sort:  

I agree with you! It sucks that the devices we use, there is no real competition and it's all coming from a few companies. Until we can get independent manufactures or be able to run our own custom software on devices it's not going to change. They see the value in our data and they're not going to let it go so easily.

I try to reduce my data footprint as much as possible, but It is almost unavoidable feeding the beast.
