@machenmusic I am not a security expert and I appreciate being conservative when it comes to security. I would just hope the discussion was focused on the security aspect. Why having throttling, or a way to temporary disable the feature, for instance, while typing in a textfield marked as password, wouldn’t work? I don’t buy the privacy issues. That data Is not as exploitable as mic and camera. Should we ask permissions to get the mouse positions between clicks then? Can we clearly state the problem we want to solve? Not the solution.
