    Conspiracy Theory Confirmed: Researcher Shows How Phone Shows Ads Based on Conversations It Hears

    While social media companies have spent years denying that their apps are recording your private conversations, the truth is finally coming out.

    By John Vibes - June 10, 2018

    For years, smartphone users have been growing increasingly suspicious that their devices are listening to them to feed them advertisements and to “enhance their experience” on third-party apps. Companies like Google and Facebook have consistently denied these claims, saying that targeted ads and messages are merely a coincidence, and that data for these services are taken in other ways.

    However, earlier this year during the Cambridge Analytica scandal we began to see some of the first hints that our phones may actually be listening to us.

    Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie says that they have probably been listening all along. During an appearance before the UK parliament, Wylie said, “There’s audio that could be useful just in terms of, are you in an office environment, are you outside, are you watching TV, what are you doing right now?”

    Since the scandal, experts who have studied this possibility began revealing their surprising results.

    In a recent interview with Vice, Dr. Peter Hannay, the senior security consultant for the cybersecurity firm Asterisk, explained how third-party apps exploit a loophole to gather the voice data from your phone.

    All of those apps don't need access to your microphone for no reason.

    Ads based upon email and text messages have been common for so long that people hardly care. They are ramping up the voice capture these days.

    I compiled a "brief" history of events since October 2008 that are defining the global currency war and the role that gold is playing:

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?

    So we arent paranoid as they really have been trying very hard to listen to everything we say?

    Here is the point. Information like EVERYTHING YOU SAY is used differently by different groups.

    • Social - Friends and Family
    • Technology
    • Education
    • Religion
    • Employers
    • Advertisers
    • Government


    The only group that is given any focus is Advertisers, and they are treated as benign and harmless. However, lets take the people you trust the most. Family. Do you really want your entire family to be able to hear everything to you talk about with anyone? There are some types of information you just have to keep from the rest of your family. What if your spouse was immediately notified of you planning something that involved them that you intentionally tried to keep from them? Like a birthday present? Kind of ruins the surprise doesnt it? But what if it wasnt something that benefits you? Oh, your gay and havent come out yet? What if you are dating a person of a different religion or skin color and your family wont approve? How about when other groups use that data against you also? How about you fail a class based on what you eat or your political opinion you express at home? Do you think this type of data might be used against the most innocent person to prevent them from getting a raise or a promotion? How about when it becomes a crime to even speak against the govt, as is the case in China? Do you really think your very life wont be put in jeopardy? How about when it isnt your whole life, but ways to nickel and dime you to death, as is the habit of insurance companies? Were you talking about possibly having certain illnesses that might cost them money, shouldnt they have access to that data so they can first raise your insurance rates, and second, use that data as an excuse to not pay for any medical claims you make? What if your whole life was so readily accessible to everyone that you were given a Citizen Score like China? Would you just roll over and become more obedient while the rich and powerful continue to destroy the fabric of your future? Who should be the one with the Citizen Score, you, or the so called leaders?

    How about you are having an extramarital affair with your bosses wife? Shouldn't it be kept secret, at least for a while?
