Cellphone recognized my voice?

By stinkypinky ·
Tags: Smartphones
I was speaking to a woman [ a stranger] in a bar . her cellphone between us. i had no cellphone. i never introduced myself or traded contact info.with her. She spoke about donating blood for cash......When i got home my laptop, on Youtube sent me an ad to "Donate blood for extra cash" My friend says this is pure coincidence. I say impossible. i am 61 and have never seen an ad for donating blood. The ONLY possible explanation is that her phone identified me by my voice,,while we were chatting. Please any thoughts that are not dismissive. Thank you in advance.

Is that an iPhone?

https://9to5mac.com/2019/09/01/find-my-lost-iphone-offline/ notes that their phones emit a (supposedly encrypted) identifier. And then if you looked at their facebook or such, well, I'm going to stop here.

Yup, can happen.
