New website helps users opt out of smartphone tracking
Airports, malls, large stores and even London litter bins have been caught tracking people via the Wi-Fi signals broadcast by their smartphones, and presumably national spying agencies such as the NSA and GCHQ are doing it too. The obvious solution is to turn Wi-Fi off when you leave your home or office. However, now there's a website, smartstoreprivacy.org, that could help, though so far it's US-only.
The beta website has been set up by the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF), a Washington, DC-based think-tank, and The Wireless Registry, which describes itself as the first global registry of wireless names and identifiers. Smartphone users must go to their Smart Store Privacy website and register their smartphone's MAC address to opt out of tracking.
