Passive internet tracking (usually through proxy or vpns) is commonly considered a high-precision measure of internet usage. In this paper, we take a look at limitations of that method.

We show that there is a differential bias between computer and mobile device tracking, which can be attributed either to self-selection or measurement errors. Both are worrying.
