As The New York Times reported last summer, shops from Nordstrom's to JC Penney have tried out the system. (London even tried out a system using public trash cans.) The system automatically logs any phone within Wi-Fi range, giving stores a complete record of who walked into the shop and when. But any phone using iOS 8 will be invisible to the process, potentially calling the whole system into question.
I will be one of the first to upgrade asap to iOS 8. This is a huge win for privacy! One that I have been looking for for a long time! Thank you Apple!
Can't wait till every other device does the same thing; not just iPhones, but all phones and all tablets, all laptops, etc. that have been a part of this.
This is not their information nor is it their 'right' to have access to it.
