Um, so a friend of mine sent me a link to wiki leaks where I read about this privacy thing related to CIA and how ur data is stolen and sent to various websites, hackers and stuff. I read it and I wanted to share it out with my friends in case they find it important and maybe they didn't know ^^
So I read that phones and other modern technology, from smart phones to tablets and smart TVs, many companies try to assure you their techno is safe but usually, 98% of all modern techno is hacked. Even tho if these are turned of, unless the wires are pulled out, they WILL steal the data.
They take pictures, make videos and record everything you do and say. This info is then either sent to the CIA that saves them or they send them to various hacking websites OR even hackers.
The least I can tell you is that you should cover or patch up ur phone's camera with thivk opaque tape and make sure to give ur phone etc a thick cover so that it can't record what u say properly. You can do these steps if u want to keep what u say private etc.
Thanks for ur time. Hope this was helpful ^^ Sorry for bothering you but I thought of it as a right for you guys to know too and hope you spread the word ^^
(this was copy pasted from another thread I wrote in and was too lazy to wrte again XD)
Oh my. I became a little frightened all of the sudden and how dare they invade someone's privacy! Well, then I have to be more aware then and thanks for this info (and also to your friend who gave you the link) xD
I mean, I don't trust the CIA either (granted I don't particilarly like America in general from a political standpoint) but the tape-camera is true in that it prevents hackers from stealing data I mean Mr IMadeFacebook Mark Zuckerberg does it too
Personally I don't care for WikiLeaks, but I don't distrust it either.
Hmmm, is that so? Oh wow... The thing is that they have been spying (if i can say so) Amaricans ever since all the tech stuff started taking over the worlds and it's not a secret for most of people. (That's actually why I still use my OLD Nokia my mum brought sometime in 00's)
Hacking is not so hard to deal with but it's hard to find people behind it. That's probably why they're not bothered. We had few issues with suicide groups in social media in Russia and they were searching for some admin guy for like 2 years. Pfff...
I can be happy that most of my devices have broken cameras and mics (or don't even have them) xDDDD
