In the UK, the BBC is planning on using Wifi detector vans to snoop on familiy Wifis, analyze their internet traffic and determine if they are watching online BBC content without paying a television subscription. Basically, we are coming into an age were techniques formerly used on enemies of the state, are used to monitor private internet behavior. If this isn’t a violation of privacy, I don’t know what is. Like I’ve said before: protecting yourself with a VPN will become a necessity. Edward Snowden was spot on: we are building a turn-key tyranny.
