    Hell Apple does it also with Siri which is a reason I just don't use Siri, its turned off. Heck even Samsung Galaxies have it. And there is Cortana, the voice-activated system from Microsoft. You can turn them all off.

    Xfinity did this to us several years ago. The idea was you could get ‘WiFi anywhere’ if there was an Xfinity customer within range. You had to opt out and it was a PITA. I was furious! No way somebody else was going to use bandwidth I was paying for. I think they got a lot of blowback and cancelled the program.

    (or give them to someone you don't like) I could see that happening. 😏. This Thread should be made more aware of. In today's society especially in this country, (spying seems to be the norm) As you guys have stated about Cellphones, one can't leave home without a cellphone and Not be tracked, from GPS, and or use of the cell towers. There are electronics used by your local police department it's call a (stinger) in which any law enforcement department can use without a court order. They pull up to any intersection or sitting at any intersection. This surveillance device can pull cell phone IP, IMIE number from any cellphone and it's legal for them to without getting a court order. But than anytime you use your cellphone internet or not those two are recorded plus your advertise ID. Case in point, I had to make a 911 call just last week guess what 911 disabled my settings in My cellphone for location. I had each and every sitting Off! Location and precise location including for emergency. So No You have No privacy whatsoever. One would have to Not own a cellphone or PC. Another thing take cars or trucks with all the computers on board yeah they can track it and they are.
