Is my router passing information between PS4 and PC?

Probably based on your IP address.

Hi Guys, 

I have a PS4 connected to the same wifi router that my PC is. Sometimes i watch Youtube on PS4 (im loged into PSN), 
Then when i use my PC and watch Youtube not loged in to any account and even using incognito i see recomendations that are very similar to what i watched the previous day.  
I find it very suprising to see for example a channel I watched before on PS4 , appearing on PC (not some mainstream popular channel)


Is it possible that such informations are shared trough the router or network provider between my PS4 and PC?

It's the YouTube algorithm. My PS4 is not logged in to PSN, and the recommended videos are highly correlated to those on my other devices that are logged in to my Google account.

Zero privacy. In case you live with someone then you basically have to share your recommendations. Way to go
