A researcher from the University of Illinois has discovered that a mobile phone’s accelerometer can be used to produce an unique fingerprint, allowing the phone to be tracked even if all other privacy settings are locked down. Fingerprinting through the sensors is possible because of small variations in each manufactured sensor. In a test researchers were able to recognize devices based on the fingerprint with a 96% accuracy.
