If the security expert is bothered about privacy maybe investigate McD slurping of phone numbers

In UK I tried (and did not) to make use of McD free wifi

However when you "conntected" via phone, could only get onto their network if you let them have various details - so not exactly free wifi as you pay with your information.

(Disclosure: - I was not (& never am / have been) a McD customer, I had no signal on my SIM and needed wifi so I could use make an urgent phone call via wifi make a call functionality as no call boxes around)
