Drones arenâ€™t just for the NSA and the FBI. Advertisers are now getting into the drone game by using them to spy on your cell phone data! How is that possible?
AdNear, a Singapore-based advertising firm, is collecting data via Wi-Fi and cellular transmission signals using small drones flying around the San Fernando Valley in California. The purpose is to deliver hyper-targeted advertisements to users using the gathered user information. While the collected data doesnâ€™t include conversations or personally identifiable information, it is clear that more explicit regulations for privacy need to be in place.
