Silicon Valleys biggest companies are always watching you even when youre browsing pornography websites in incognito mode. What these companies might be doing with pornography-site browsing data is a mystery. Oracle, which owns a number of large data brokers and has been called a privacy deathstar, could, for example add data collected by trackers with its current profiles. Dr. Maris argues that this lack of disclosure is similar to the issue of sexual consent. As in any sexual interaction, silence must not be mistaken for consent, she said. Individuals should have a clear understanding of the power dynamics of the sexual exchange they are entering when visiting porn sites. Those power dynamics, according to Dr. Maris, are deeply unbalanced. You have some of the worlds most powerful companies here, she said, noting that theres very little redress for the consumer should the data end up in the wrong hands.

Butthurt about something? how about dialing back the grumpiness a few notches?
They will use the data for blackmailing people. They probably already use it to manipulate the armed forces, using th data to force people to spy for foreign countries. Forcing CEOs to make decisions that are favorable to the person(s) who hold the data.. Its a doomsday info dump waiting to happen.
When you look into the Google the Google looks into you.
And I try to put on a jolly good show for them.
The Epstein Syndrome - one guy has a little blackmail success and everybody wants to get in on the act. :)
But you are still being tracked. It is the principle.
I never checked, and am a bit surprised. It's not just posting; Google is watching you read this page. It doesn't have to be that way.
But the site administrators have chosen to use google analytics, which sends all the traffic data (every hit) to Google.

What if my phone is in a Faraday bag when I go?
You might not watch porn, but the point is all of your web surfing including your Free Republic activity is being captured and stored. It may not matter so much now, but some day, for someone, itll matter severely.
I dont watch porn, so take your stupid article and go to hell with it. Dont make assumptions about your readers.
What about those that use a smart TV for google, Youtube, etc., but never actually log in.
I think that if someone uses a smart TV but never logs into anything, they are automatically in “anonymous” mode since there are no credentials.
Attention conservative sleazebags, if any: if moral decency won’t get you to quit, the growing likelihood of discovery should.
