Good reminder from New York Times that you are being watched. The article also includes some practical steps you can take to make yourself a little more private:

Most companies track your web browsing. All of these trackers create a profile — often inaccurate — to serve up ads, personalized recommendations and more.

If you want to see what all of your connected devices are doing online, check out the Princeton IoT Inspector. You can run the software on a Mac, but it’s better suited to the Raspberry Pi…

IoT Inspector shows you where your data goes but doesn’t allow you to block anything. A Raspberry Pi can help you there, too. Pi Hole and Adguard are free programs that block ads across your network and log statistics while doing so. They can be a bit tricky to set up, but once they’re running, you’ll see exactly how much tracking is happening on your computer, phone, TV and any other smart device you hook into the system.
