8 Things You Wouldn't Think Are Spying on You, but Are | The Daily Sheeple

Do you think that surveillance at the mall is only aimed at would-be shoplifters?

Do you think that it's only surveillance cameras that are scanning the shoppers?

Think Again...

"Although shopper surveillance devices hidden in a mannequin’s eyes are not viewed as a privacy violation by many, some retailers are upping the ante and have begun tracking customers via information from their cell phones.

Many see this as an invasion of privacy.

But retailers like Nordstrom, who use WiFi signals from customers’ cell phones to track shopping habits, argue that it is a great way to learn about customer habits and how they can improve the services offered in the retail setting."

(*Tip: Take the battery out of your phone whilst at the mall, if you don't want to be tracked/stalked in this way.)
