Helsinki Airport Is On Track to Track Travelers through Wi-Fi

1407206381308Wi-Fi, Apps, Web-browsing: they all increase the ability to track you and some would argue that they invade your privacy. For example, our smartphones and tablets have location services, Facebook tracks what you “like,” Google tracks your browsing history to serve relevant ads, etc.

Well, now the travel industry has taken it to the next level and Helsinki Airport is proposing to be able to track travelers within their airport once you connect to their wi-fi. This, they say, will enable them to know where you are to prevent bottlenecks in the terminals, send out flight updates and gate info, and market to travelers with offers from shops and restaurants.

What do you think about this proposal? Is it helpful? Or too invasive? Read more in this article from SKIFT.
