Thread: Origin is (apparently) still spying on you.

  1. #1

    Default Origin is (apparently) still spying on you.

    If it's true, it's rather disturbing. Didn't they already get in trouble for this? You think they would have learned by now.

    I haven't directly embedded the images because they're large and re-sizing them is a pain:

    Basically it seems to be snooping around things it has no reason to snoop on. Undoubtedly EA will come up with something massively intelligent for why this is taking place (innovation!?!), that us mere mortals would never understand. It also seems to take note of all your recently installed and uninstalled programs, and sends that information somewhere, probably to EA for 'analysis'.

    Great! Glad to know my personal information is being looked after.

    Yeah still true. Its in the EULA though so you agreed to their digital cavity search. e.g.

    EA collects non-personal information along with personal information when you actively provide it in the context of various online and mobile activities

    you are authorizing EA to collect, store, and use in accordance with this Privacy Policy

    These ad serving technologies are integrated into our sites, online or mobile products and services; if you do not want to use this technology, do not play.
    The section on what info they share (aka sell) with 3rd parties is also crammed full tricky lawyers bullsht language.

    EA is dodgy as fk - though I think by now everything knows that.

    I wonder if it spies on you even if you don't start origin.

    That would take skill

    It collects the information every time you launch it, according to the people on reddit.
