    Default Same ad for 2 days?

    I don't react to the pop-up ads, but I have noticed that I have been getting exactly the same ad for 2 days now.

    The content relates to the thread I started about the compact jump starters.

    Is this normal?

    It doesn't only record your searches.. It records what you communicate online in social and can also listen to what you talking about around your phone...yor android or iPhone is basically an undercover Google spy....

    Yip, I was chatting to my dad on watsapp the other day about weed eaters - he needed to buy a new one. I didnt google them or anything, it was completely limited to the watsapp chat.
    For the next week I was inundated with adverts for weedeaters!

    I have heard of two seperate cases where people chatted about something, with their phones just lying on the table, and then getting the adds related to their conversation. Hear-say yes, but from very trusty sources.

    Not hearsay.

    It's true.

    When visiting a website, cookies are used to track what you look at ect ect and the search engines uses these cookies to show customized ads based on your web browsing habits.

    I made a booking at the Kruger once. They sent me a confirmation e-mail via PDF to my gmail. Couple of days before our departure, my google calendar let me know. When I checked, Google put in all the dates into my calendar. But not just you are going away from this date and returning this date. It even added the camp names with their respective dates! So Google looked inside my PDF and added the dates and camps to the calendar. Scary....

    Hence the huge step up with privacy settings on phones these days. Apps don't blanket ask for permission to your mic for example. You can fine tune it now so that it only uses the mic when using the app. Theoretically, the app can then not "spy" on your when the app is not in use.

    This is actually concerning, that would mean their claim of end-to-end encryption means sweet blue f-all if your messages are tracked and used for advertising.
