As we all know. Our internet privacy is, well, non existent really. Internet service providers can spy on our internet use in every way as they see fit.

So then, I have a question. Is it safe for APs to browse Wizard of Odds site and Wizard of Vegas site while in a casino (presuming using the casino/hotel 's wifi)? The casino probably has the means to see who views these sites. And needless to say, people who browse Wizard's sites has a much higher probability of being AP. The casino can easily ban us for just that, or at the very least, monitor our plays much closer (unwanted heat) until they are convinced that we are indeed APs.

I would not be so worried about visiting the site as much as being aware of how much the eye in the sky can see. We are not going to track all of the internet traffic to see who is visiting what websites but I do know some establishments have cameras that can read you phone screens with a very high degree of clarity. Bring up a message on that phone or a spreadsheet and many places will be able to grab a screenshot to see what you are viewing. I have yet to hear of any casino tracking internet traffic except when it applies to their employees.

Lay off the reefer just a tad. The paranoia is starting to affect you.
Seriously though, I think it is irrelevant anywhere but at a machine (of course tables you can't except poker). I saw someone get asked to leave for using an app while playing video poker.

I doubt they'd be able to connect specific data traffic with a specific person, unless you're also uploading photos or running FaceTime or Skype or something...

Therefore, if they're paranoid at all about it, they could just block access to WoO and WoV.
