yea definitely my phone’s listening to me , no such things as a coincidence!!!
As soon as I get a new phone I delete google search bar/engine & replace it with Opera. I change default search engine to Bing which on a lap top had a diffrent back ground pic every day.Definitely go through your app permissions - why does eBay need access to your microphone? Sift out what permissions you aren't happy with and have a look at what other platforms/search engines are available. Can't hurt to try something different.
A verbal conversation....Mmmm.My phone does it too. I'll be having a verbal conversation with someone, then next time I click Google on my phone I get links to sites relevant to what I was just talking about. I hate it!
Yep I specified a verbal conversation, because apparently these days you can also have text conversations, Snapchat conversations, Facebook conversations, what's app conversations, etc etc. I'm not surprised when a device picks up on the content of these non-verbal conversations, but it's a bit spooky when it picks up on the verbal ones too.A verbal conversation....Mmmm.
PS. If you have an iPhone and ear buds you can set your phone to work as a microphone, leave it in a room and listen to conversations from anywhere in the house through your buds. So I’m told.
bob. U Seam to have dope your Ewe sew all Mtype in semtex/fisons grow bags and things like nail b o m b s
and see who turns up at the door,
It wasn’t your daughter’s phone handset that did it but the online service (Alexa) that did it. Had there been a fire in the house and your daughter had said fire engine.......... things might have a different interpretation.Slightly off on a tangent but my eldest daughter is badly afflicted by dyslexia and uses her phone or Alexi to be able to spell somethings. She used the device one day to check the spelling of fire engine as she was doing a project with my granddaughter and the next thing you know she hears "Emergency operator, which service do you require".
The whole idea of your every word being monitored remotely by some unknown agency worries me immensely, so I will give such devices a wide berth.

I know, I know, that's what I say, but apparently they are called conversations, so your PS is probably correct!Tim,
You can communicate without talking, but you can’t converse without talking. .
PS. Wouldn’t surprise me if they’ve changed the definition of Conversation to suit today’s world.
