Fucking hell, as some of you have pointed out in the comments, also, it’s tied to my router. I have the same router I had in Malmö. If this is not a GDPR violation, I have no idea what is.
So Mozilla – Defender of Privacy™ – is storing my location history, tied to my router, without ever having gotten consent from me to do so.
This is a fucking scandal.
It's kind of impossible to not have a location related to your wifi router, it doesn't even need your consent. I frequently gather and share nearby WiFi networks and radio cells with my GPS on during my walking, to improve libre/free databases like the Mozilla one. So it's not necessary to have your explicit consent to know where your router is, but anyone can gather and share that information. It's not related to your identity in any way, tho, it's just a Mac address geolocated somewhere
@aral hmmm... would love to check that but I dont use Gnome ... but the app is installed.
But launching it I got :
(org.gnome.Maps:2917014): folks-WARNING **: 16:46:51.336: Failed to find primary PersonaStore with type ID 'eds' and ID 'system-address-book'.
Individuals will not be linked properly and creating new links between Personas will not work.
The configured primary PersonaStore's backend may not be installed. If you are unsure, check with your distribution.
I guess I'm alright 😅
@aral To better understand your position here: if you don't like the way Mozilla's geolocation works, what would you say about https://github.com/n76/DejaVu, that's basically the same approach, but the data about your WiFi AP collected by users are stored at their phones and serve to only those users?
