Currently, our feeds are unfiltered. Please note that this information is transmitted from each aircraft, in clear text, unencrypted over the air, and participants are merely receiving it. Any concern that “bad guys” might use this information needs to be tempered with the fact that anyone can easily build their own basic receiver that can grab this information for less than $100, and deploy it themselves without any help whatsoever. The folks over at OpenBARR also know this.
This is by far not the only way to get “unfiltered” aircraft data over the internet. It is the most user-friendly, however.
Implementing filters would merely be “security theater” at this point. Such “security theater” is very popular these days, however.
I’m sure this will be a point of discussion going forward, and I welcome comments below.
