consumersmartphone, 11 Mar 2017You have point bro but for me, American is good people but I donk know why they elected Trump.... moreyou just have to look at the latest episodes of south park (yes I know, hear me out) to see what people are like when their information is being looked at by somebody who isn't them. when 'the Danish' were going to leak everybody's information in south park they got paranoid, now blast that to the scale of a country, and you can see how well it correlates to quite a few of the biggest countries actions in 2017, people running the countries are scared, CIA probably just hacked them for banter but because the world is in the state that it is, every country is probs doing the same thing too. Has the CIA come out and said why they feel the need to be hacking everything left right & centre?
I mean doesn't china have more people using a completely different social media that isn't facebook and twitter? wonder where that one came from... And I wonder who is sitting through tons of data rn
I reckon google and apple knew something about this beforehand, I mean a) its obvious the CIA have hacked multiple platforms like they have & b) the companies are probably being told to hush hush, to come out and say close to the same thing as one another they probably haven't even looked at stopping the openings that the CIA have been crawling through.
like a parasite
EDDDDD, 10 Mar 2017 Why is CIA not criminalised for these actions and behaviours? Surely there is NO such thing ... moreYou have point bro but for me, American is good people but I donk know why they elected Trump.
I'm half British, IMO in this world, British and American think they are the most, top class society and top top top in many (if not everything). So they think other will jealous, will hate, will do bad to them so they so afraid, but I think American is beyond, they just paranoid. Worst: they leaders or most people who have influence there like to tell horror imagination, where ever you in church, school, masjid, park, party and get more intend when election campaign. They live in horror story.
When they heard about "this is the most safest, the most secure" they will celebrate it and line to get it. We know when the first iOS born and apple state "The most safest and secure OS" people gone crazy in love and buy Apple. My family too! I got one too from my old man.
Now when they got news there are "backdoor", most of them pretend to ignore it but in they head they get more paranoid.
Then ask yourself: if you are good people, do good, then why need to be paranoid? Why need horror imagination story to tell in campaign or school activities or prayer? Guess what: most of them: they dont live good, or they are not good people, or that are how your society work, or horror make profit for some (high class people).
Why is CIA not criminalised for these actions and behaviours? Surely there is NO such thing as RIGHT to ANONIMITY and RIGHT to PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY in the United States of America.
If a n individual tries to hack another person or organisation's system, there will be repercussions. But if its the CIA, we just let them get away with it. Because its "intelligence" LOL how dumb americans are

The NSA and FBI still need a warrant to spy on you. The courts have ruled that collecting "metadata" like the time and number of your phone calls and the address on mail you send isn't covered by the fourth amendment.
Most of this nonsense is hysteria driven by ignorance. People seem to want to go to great lengths to protect themselves against something that isn't happening to them and never will, meanwhile the bad guys are getting a free ride and people will blame the government for not doing more.

Anything you do now can be deemed criminal at any point in time and if all of your information is stored somewhere WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT when or if that time comes that information WILL be used against you in a court of LAW. Stand up for your privacy and don't lie docile to think you are not doing anything wrong. This is a message to everyone thinking this way.

The day you understand that you'll realize how your view is actually an attack on other people's freedoms, sure you have the right to relinquish *your* freedom in that way, but not the right to force others into not having a choice -- a legitimate choice by the way.
One GOOD reason NOT to buy the S8 is the iris scanner.
A few years back they introduced the fingerprint scanner, after they added the face unlock feature, now they start with the iris scanner. I bet in 5 years max they will add the blood test feature to "check for your sugar levels" :))
That module to measure the sugar levels in your blood was actually something they wanted to go for until Fuggle decided to buy Project Ara so they could discontinue it because it was going to interfere with the Pixel.
Also, in case nobody knows, WiFi can be used as a radar that can see anything inside a house in real time. Add a good software to translate those radar waves into 3D image frames and voila! Another super surveillance technology..
I think to believe that your phone isn't being spied upon is naïve and I believe for once second they fixed the hole to infiltrate your mobile phone or any other device.
Android was built to be used as surveillance big brother is real and I doubt there is much we can do except don't have a phone. This is the future now.
I hate to be a cynic but looks like Snowden was right and unless we reject these phones it will just get worse.
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2017Americans has no clue what privacy is.In their country, privacy is very expensive so you can use that to blackmail and treat people.
LOL! Yeah the NSA is spying on me! They need to know about these suspicious emails to my grandma...
Unless you're a thief, terrorist or paedophile you don't really need to worry too much about it.
Let's say it clear: have been fixed for third party haxorz, but aren't there proper backdoors for NSA/CIA left? Who knows.
Alien , 09 Mar 2017So if you really want a secure phone, either go with BlackPhone, either with Turing Phone. The... moreI'd say that too, if I had not seen the BlackPhone being hacked first on all the Hack-a-Tons and Pwn2Own competitions where it has been.
nate0, 09 Mar 2017In what way do you say that...Android is just too easy though. Why so much is out there for it... moreI think whatever point you made for Android could also be made for the desktop version of Windows, bearing in mind Microsoft already pledged more than once to converge mobile with desktop.
Anonym, 09 Mar 2017I would take it as a hint that people with 'intelligence' don't use that system.In what way do you say that...Android is just too easy though. Why so much is out there for it. We could go on on about that. iOS well...hardening is their fortet. Not much wiggle room. Windows Mobile is not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I would put it above Android in hardening dept anyday. What do you think?
