Another one caught red-handed: Wacom has been tracking your activity as well
Wacom might not be as popular as the last company that took advantage of the user's private data which should have stayed confidential (if you missed that article, you might want to check it out, it's about Avast's free antivirus), but the fact that Wacom drawing tablets track the name of all apps open by their users is quite scary. Before moving on, we should highlight the fact that Wacom has not said anything about this yet, so this story will definitely have a follow-up.
The interesting part that follows involves Robert and the use of Burp Suite and Wireshark to track what kind of data was his computer sending to Google Analytics. The geeks interested in the whole story can check the link below, but the others should keep in mind the essential: Wacom's driver software is sending out information regarding all the apps that its user opens on the computer. Thankfully, it looks like there is a "Wacom Experience Program" setting that can be disabled in the Wacom Desktop Center software.
Next stop: Wacom's official position regarding this issue, we hope. If you have any thoughts about this, feel free to drop your comments below.
