IoT Inspector - by Princeton
« on: November 29, 2019, 09:57:04 AM »
Wasn't exactly sure which section to post in. Princeton university students made a tool to see what's "spying" on you.

https://iot-inspector.princeton.edu

Hope fully they make it for other OS soon. Honestly, not sure why it was made for macOS first but my guess was for the smaller audience or the team that made it just liked that OS and want to see if people even caught on.

so how do we spy back?

The hole in the middle makes it useful.

But the use comes from what is not there.

I'm guessing it scans the computer or network traffic and builds a list. I know Firefox now tracks a list of all the items that tack you so you can see trends built right into the browser itself.

i guess i have to find a new browser to use.
