On June 8th, Amazon Sidewalk will steal your internet bandwidth and compromise your privacy
On June 8th, Amazon Sidewalk will begin compromising your privacy and stealing your internet bandwidth employing "OPT-OUT"" as opposed to OPT-IN on all Amazon IOT devices.

That means if you haven't already opted out, on June 8th your devices will become part of an Amazon mesh network by default. And get this, You can't access the settings directly from a desktop computer unless you install the Amazon App.

The data lust of tech giants for every bit of your privacy while compromising your data security has reached a fevered pitch.

I can't even imagine how many ISP's Terms of Service this will violate for the sharing of services with your unknown neighbors. What could possibly go wrong?

It is encouraging to think the crowd here at GLP feels the same as I do about how intrusive companies like Amazon are and this whole Internet of Things BS.

We are so far away from the internet beginnings and what it's intended use and purpose was. Very few have any idea about such things.

Meanwhile didn't Bezos just get billions of NASA money too?

It's time to end big tech to avoid being enslaved by them.

OR maybe our species really is too weak to resist the conveniences of modern life, and will succumb to tyranny for false comfort.

Firestick is a wifi device. I'll have to check the settings in mine.

This whole thing probably has to do with the VAX too, connecting to the zombie VAX population where 5G can't.

Would be interesting to do forensic analysis of one's home network, like a full network trace, to see what the hell is really going on when you are trying to live your life.

Maybe I will do that and post instructions and results. Would be fun.

The only Amazon device I own is a Kindle. Fortunately, it's old enough that I would have had to actually activate Alexa. I didn't. Wonder if slightly newer models will be prey to this theft.
More deplorable all the time.

what's new about intenet being shared. windows has forced user to automatic update via other computers since windows 10.
which mean other computer can access and share each other resources under the command of bot user who automatically maintain windows system. which of course can also be called anytime by the owner.

windows 10 free because it is a giant backdoor.
