Harvard plans to track students' WiFi signals for coronavirus contact tracing

"- Harvard is developing a system that would track students’ WiFi signals to aid in COVID-19 contact tracing.

  • Students would lose access to the university’s WiFi if they do not want to participate.
  • Experts point to inaccuracy and data privacy concerns related to WiFi surveillance." ...


It seems it would be easy for students who are using their cell phones and/or tablets to turn off wifi and use data, so as not to be tracked. Many cell/data plans offer unlimited data these days, so it’s not as necessary to use wifi when available.

Wow big brother is working overtime at Harvard…and it’s coercive…no tracing no WiFi. Home is looking better and better…maybe that’s the plan after all. ?
