How do you stop the b#stards listening.

As above,
Samsung/ Android/ Ulefone.
'The lad' was whaffling on about last summer bbq's last night, I made a throwaway comment re.
"It's probably as good a time to be looking for a new gas burner"...

While perusing Arrse this morning, what's the first feckin ad that pops up in the banner!

He's always moaned about stuff like this on his Samsung, but I've never (knowingly) been afflicted.
I've just had to buy a new indestructible ulefone, after destroying the last one.
It was fine, this one's to running Android 10, only difference.
I've not got Google Assistant on or any of those listening devices round the place.
It's either his phone or mine listening in.
ETA.
I'm on a VPN if that makes any difference, he's not.

How do I keep the buggers at bay?
 
Wrap your head in tin foil.

Make it air-tight, just to make sure they really can't hear you.

I always try shouting 'it's time to kill Tony Blair' at the phone.

Usually when I'm not in a call, and so far I've not had any help from my phone. There is a black van outside my house a lot though

That’s nothing, I get adverts for shoes.

On a more serious note, Samsung phones are loaded with spyware as is Win10.

I have adblockers installed on all my web browsers & all computers.

Must admit that I've not had any particular problems with adverts on the iphone SE 2020 with latest version of operating system.

Not in my day, didn't exist. ( During the war...." Shut up uncle Albert"
Scaleys were always shit at Batco, having inflicted it on us. Cnuts. Regardless of how shite and heavy Bowman is, at least those stupid fcuking green slidex decoder folders to put your daily sheet into have died the death.

Young squaddies today, they don't know they're born, harrumph, 58 webbing, puttees, crisp-packet waterproofs,...zzzzzzzz.

Good to see that you still remember what you learnt on SEMC... Although you missed to opportunity to say 'Faraday Cage'.

Are you just a bit paranoid? Is there any reason to think this was anything other than a coincidence?


Do you encode everything with a one time pad? You could always swap words over to confuse any advertisers or anyone - calling a barbeque a cheesecake and vice versa perhaps, or swap tomorrow for yesterday? That will confuse everyone.

My pigeon barks at night......
 
I'll just go back to spouting my general unbridled racism, political bias and my anachronistic countryside ways...

If all I've to fear is Jihadi Packham and some tech savvy Weber Salesmen wanting a grand and a half to replace my
45 gal oil drum with a lump of wirenetting stretched across it...

I'll take me chances!
