My lad told me the other day that my phone is listening to everything I say.and then shows me adverts related to what I've been talking about..and the last month I've noticed it more and more.

Today I used my polisher on the jimny.and told the wife earlier thats what I'm off down the garage to do..and literally minutes ago and advert popped up on here of the polisher that I bought from argos about a year ago..

Weird as feck...

Yes you have, that's the thing. You give apps permission to talk to each other and only 1 app need permission for your mic. So for example you gave WhatsApp mic permission so you can ring people with it, fb then has permission to talk to those apps

Just been looking at my app permissions, it says Google is allowed all the time as it's my default setting, some apps only allowed whilst using them and others denied, how come Google is allowed all the time?
