Physical location tracking may occur when you travel with your laptop and all your previously connected networks are scanned for. Makes fingerprinting possible by just listening for requests #resilience

And for those interested Dan Geer is also featured in the Digital Resiliency section in the popular book Sandworm by Andy Greenberg. A recommended read #resiliency
