Ping: A notification pops up on your phone.

Only it’s not a text message or a reply to that witty tweet you sent out a couple of minutes ago. It’s a message from your bank. By checking your GPS location and your spending details, it can tell you are at the airport and that you are just about to head abroad. It also knows that you have forgotten to exchange any currency nor informed your credit card provider that you are heading overseas.

It’s nothing to be afraid of. In an uncanny way, this kind of marketing could be a win for consumers.
