If you are a Spanish soccer fan, they may be spying on you, or your favorite bar ...

The Liga de Fútbol Profesional is using mobile phones of football fans to spy on bars and other places where you can watch football on TV.  Millions of people in Spain have this application on their phone.

 

Original article in SpanishAutomated translation to English.

 

All of these people can become spies for La Liga and the owners of football television broadcasting rights.  Consent for the app to use the device's microphone (and who doesn't?), and you are giving permission for La Liga to remotely activate the phone's microphone and listen for a bar or public establishment where a football match is being projected without paying the fee established by the chains that own the broadcasting
rights.

Thanks for the link and wondering where GDPR fits into this picture.

Apparently this has hit the news again.

 

Oh, and GDPR?  Apparently the licence agreement says you say they can do it ...
