Your smart TV is probably tracking what you watch. “Automated content recognition” (ACR) technology detects what you’re watching, uploading snippets of content to a reference library so marketers can keep track of your viewing habits. Your Smart TV Is Reporting What You Watch Automated content recognition isn’t the only tracking issue on TVs, but it’s one of the most startling. Here’s what the marketing industry doesn’t want you to know: Many TVs have “ automated content recognition ” technology that detects what you’re watching—even if you’re watching OTA TV or an old VHS tape—and informs marketers. When this feature is enabled—and it’s probably enabled by default, or after a prompt that really encourages you to enable it without explaining it properly—your smart TV will monitor your watching habits and home phone. To do so, your smart TV will capture sections of video, snippets of audio, still images, or some combination of the three, and upload the data to a “listening … [Read more...] about Disconnect Your Smart TV from the Internet to Stop Tracking
When you’re shopping for a VPN or otherwise looking into your privacy, you’ll quickly run into claims that your internet service provider is collecting your data and selling it. Is that even true, though? What are the rules that govern what ISPs can and cannot do with your data? Are You in the U.S. or Elsewhere? RELATED What is the GDPR Privacy Law and Why Should You Care? Whether or not your data is being sold largely depends on your location. If you’re in a country that’s a member of the European Union, for example, you don’t have to worry. The General Data Protection Regulation expressly forbids your ISP from even collecting your data without your express permission, let alone selling it. In fact, around the world, it’s often illegal for ISPs to gather data and sell it to third parties. For example, Canada doesn’t allow it, nor does Australia . In the United States, however, things are very different. ISPs have been allowed to sell customer data to … [Read more...] about Do ISPs Track and Sell Your Browsing Data?
Voice assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant are a convenient way to control smart home devices, set timers, hear the weather, and perform other common tasks. But, if you don’t like the “always listening” part, you can avoid it. What We Mean When We Say “Always Listening” Smart speakers (and mobile devices, when they have features like “Hey Siri” or “Hey Google” enabled) aren’t “always listening” in the way you might think. They’re always listening for the voice command that activates them. However, they’re not always recording you. They only record and upload audio when they hear that voice command. Of course, sometimes they hear the voice command incorrectly. A smart speaker, smartphone, or smart watch might think it hears “Hey Siri,” “Hey Google,” or “Alexa” and start listening, uploading something you really didn’t intend for it to hear. That audio might then be listened to by a human being for quality assurance reasons—unless you change your privacy … [Read more...] about How to Use a Voice Assistant Without It “Always Listening”
Any creative work you do is covered by copyright. This means that if you write something, take a photo, record a song, paint a picture, or do anything that creates intellectual property, you get certain legal protections. The biggest protection is that other people aren’t able just to take your work and use it how they please. This is why services like Facebook have such complicated (and scary) Terms of Service . RELATED: Does Facebook Own My Photos? But what if you want other people to be able to use your work? Well, you can grant individual licenses to anyone you want but that would get time consuming very quickly. There are entire departments in publishing houses that just deal with licensing the stuff for which they control the copyright. If instead, you want anyone to be able to use your work subject to certain requirements, you can use a Creative Commons License. The Different Terms of Creative Commons Licenses There isn’t just one Creative Commons (CC) … [Read more...] about What Are Creative Commons Licenses?
