I plugged in a wireless mouse receiver while browsing its manufacturer’s website. Browser settings that allowed sites access to USB devices were turned off.
The manufacturer’s website, upon the plugging of the receiver, displayed a new webpage element in the form of a welcome message with the model number of the mouse on it and some setup instructions.
How did the receiver communicate with the website?
I trust this manufacturer to have ethics, as it’s a reputable company. But I’m very confused about how this works under the hood
