    Cell Phone spy ?

    Maybe No Big Deal & there is a Logical Reason

    I'm sitting Here Watching Youtube
    & Out the Corner of My Eye a flash Distracts Me.
    I see my Phone sitting on the Desk Like this

    The Screen is Not lit, & the Light Goes Out.
    I stare for a Couple seconds & the Light Comes back on ,
    Screen still Does Not come on.

    First Thought Camera Lens


    Then No I have the Lens Covered with a return Address Sticker

    Has me wondering if Someone Tried to Remotely Turn My camera on,
    Or if the Phone outside screen Lights when something Updates, But doesn't Light the inside screen. or Displays

    if I knew it was a spy,I'd find a pic of the ugliest hairy butt, Or Maxinne Waters Lips & Point the Camera That way from now on.

    Don't think you wouldn't be spied on by our government, the Chinese don't care about what your doing as much as our government does. HH

    Hi,

    Jeff, that looks like a flip phone from 1992...lol I doubt if any spyware software has been written for or any back-doors built into that model!

    However, I share your paranoia (heightened state of awareness) when it comes to "smart" technology. However, that Flintstone phone is not very smart...lol

    By the way, I feel privileged to live in such close proximity to the Grand High Poobah of Treasurenet. You're just across the river from me. Have you ever found any Lenape artifacts?

    Best regards,

    JG

    Then I take it all back. In reference to a phone, the biggest threat to your privacy are the Apps. The entire purpose of creating an App, is to entice the phone owner into downloading what is essentially a spyware package hidden behind some useful or entertaining functionality like a game. We all know that corporations are liars when they tell us 'we're not spying on you' or 'selling your personal information.'

    Some Apps are preinstalled and cannot be removed without compromising the functionality of your phone. They are designed that way. It's no guarantee that the App will cease spying on you (collecting data), but you should make sure you have disallowed the use of the camera or microphone on all Apps installed on your phone. Of course the Apps are set to 'share' your date and access your camera and mic by default. Make sure you have opted out of 'sharing data' with Google etc. Your phone's manufacturer has hidden default 'data sharing' in a hundred places. Check everything on your phone.

    The Carriers, Google, Microsoft, and their marketing partners all want access to your contact list (saved numbers/names/ addresses). Which is why I do not save any numbers or addresses on my Android. If you can't remember their number, they're probably not that important. They also want to track your browsing history.

    When not in use, I always throw something over my phone. A hat, an envelope, a towel. Anything to block the unauthorized participation of the phone's camera or microphone in my home life. On my laptop, I have a piece of tape over the camera. Just like Mark Zuckerberg does with his. Hmmmm...

    And remember. Paranoia is but a heightened state of awareness.

    Best regards,

    JG

    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!

    It may look like paranoia but I think that there are a lot of hidden spy apps that can track all of your activity and send your data to the databases of developers of the current model. Also, do not forget about such apps as sim-card location trackers and other technologies. But when I realized that my wife can track my devices easily I've started thinking about the device without internet connection and camera to feel safer.
