  • Google Streetview Logs MAC address

    ....At least in Germany.

    I find this pretty disturbing and find myself wondering what kind of method they are using. I assume they are just driving around gobbling up packets and analyzing them later so even hiding your SSID is not a good deterrent.

    It's pretty scary that they might be able to associate your wireless router's MAC address with your physical location. Especially considering the amount of streets that already mapped, they could have physical locations for a vast majority of wireless routers already.

      Privacy? No such thing when broadcasting information (which a wireless router does).

            Why would IPv6 provide privacy? If anything, it lets you get more detail, because it provides real addresses instead of NAT'd ones for internal devices.
