Really interesting example of a privacy issue highlighted on r/privacy yesterday:
> visited a roommate's place and was bombarded with ads about engagement rings when I used his wifi. I asked him if he was going to propose to his girlfriend and he was shocked I found out. Helped him install PiHole/network wide ad blocking before she found out.
@schlink It's good that guy helped his friend. One of the more interesting examples where privacy needs to be protected.
@schlink Practical example of ad invasion.
