Helen Tech: Phones snooping on audio (38) RE: Tech: Phones snooping on audio 22 Jun 21

Jack, regarding your opening comments, did you happen to talk about Poulenc to anyone after listening to the CD and before your phone did its tricksy search? Or did you say aloud, something like "I think I'll listen to the Poulenc CD. I haven't heard it in months".

You said in your OP that you, "..had never referred to [Poulenc] on the internet in any way - no searches, no comment on any forum" but if you mentioned Poulenc in conversation your clever-clogs/too-smart-for-its-own-good phone may have eavesdropped and very helpfully done a search in case you wanted more info.

I did a quick search on:

smart phones audio eavesdropping

and there are instructions on modifying settings to prevent audio eavesdropping. It would help to add your phone type to the search terms.
