Task 3: option 1

What are other ways people can leave traces of information using technology?

  • using public wifi – In many cases, using public wifi means you have to sign up using an email address, your name and date of birth
  • GPS – having GPS on to track where you are driving to but also for those who track their runs/walks means that there is information out there about where you have been (You may notice that if you have an iPhone connected to your car, it will suggest locations when you turn your car on. Mine always suggests work or home)
  • Buying online leaves your email, dob, mobile, address, etc
  • Any sites that take info from you and sell it to other sites (might be how we get targeted ads??)
