Samsung Phones Caught Spying on Users
« on: June 12, 2017, 12:44:44 AM »

Samsung is dragged into another snooping scandal, as a British newspaper has discovered that the Korean phone manufacturer is using technology to monitor online activity and collect data of users who purchased its devices.

The Sun writes that Samsung phones come with a technology called beacons that’s being used to track user activity when connected to the Internet, but also to collect information regarding specific content on the phone or even email messages.

Privacy watchdogs explain that Samsung is using these technologies to promote its own devices, and accuse the company of tricking people into agreeing with the use of beacons without them knowing exactly what they agree with.
