Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Samsung Bixby. These devices aren’t just listening to your instructions, they’re listening to everything. All your devices – mobiles, landlines, laptops and computers – are tracking you all the time too.
In India, all this information feeds into various systems: the Central Monitoring System (CMS), the Lawful Internet & Monitoring (LIM) system, Network Traffic Analysis (NETRA) and the National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID). This is then processed by various departments and agencies within the Government who have you under constant surveillance.
The problem with all this is – it’s perfectly legal.
