Our smartphones constantly leak data as they search for WiFi and Bluetooth connections and reveal past network connections, geolocation info, and even your name. This data can be collected when an internet provider decides to monitor or manipulate your activity, but also when individuals track and even trick your device into telling them more than it should.

The WiFi Whisperer is an art installation that was created into order to explore and expose this phenomenon.
