I’d be very up to date on tech. And when a business colleague asked me to join a zoom call I was like, never heard of it.
He was shocked as I would be very tech savvy.
I was like wtf are we using zoom for when there’s already free video conferencing tools in use.
We never did go on zoom.
Not on Facebook. Not on Google.
Ad blockers installed.
Only that Ad Blockers only block the ads they do don’t stop data collection and ads being targeted at you.
Truth of the matter is you can’t really stop it.
I witnessed someone displaying Bluetooth adverts in an airport. Once the Bluetooth device was in range the billboard targeted adverts at the person walking by.
How creepy is that?
You really need to hide your IP and location. But sites are wary of this and some don’t allow you access.
The internet and every app is just a data mining and sales exercise.
Nobody is safe.
