Signal exposes Instagram ad targeting?

You got to love Signal and the people behind it. After first exposing Cellebrite as a company which steals software and produces crappy software themselves. This time they exposed the amount of data that companies can use in the Facebook universe to target you via their advertisement platform. They ran advertisements that shows you which data they have on you. It shows a detailed amount and Signal was quickly shutdown by Instagram when they found out the ads they were running.

Google knows when you buy

Got several notices to this article in the Washington Post about some new features Google is flaunting to it’s customers: Google now knows when its users go to the store and buy stuff. Somehow Google has got it hands on creditcard data to tell them when you buy stuff. Almost the same as Uber got your receipts from Lyft provided by Unroll.me. I wonder where it will end, who is selling your data without you consent.
