I always thought people were freaking out for nothing over app permissions. Turns out there is a reason to be PARANOID as fk. 

Advertisers are using inaudible noise to figure out what devices are yours

Quite a fascinating read.

I have microphone permission in some of my apps (not for this reason), and have been getting emails from companies like this asking me to include their ads sdk because my app has microphone permission. Personally I see this as an unacceptable intrusion of privacy and wouldn't include their sdk even if it paid well.
