So you can read my books

D.G., Wendy, and other of my friends read my post of yesterday 

and wrote they would promptly turn off their cell phones when not in use to prevent government snooping.

Ah, those pesky buggers have thought of that.

Can someone truly bring your phone back to life without touching it? 


 But government spies can get your phone to play dead. 

 The NSA or the FBI can set up their own miniature cell network tower.

Your phone automatically connects to it. 

Now, that tower's radio waves send a command to your phone's antennae: the baseband chip.

That tells your phone to fake any shutdown and stay on.

A smart hack won't keep your phone running at 100%, though.

Spies could keep your phone on standby and just use the microphone -- or send pings announcing your location.

The only way you can tell is if your phone feels warm when it's turned off.

That means the baseband processor is still running.

Scary, right?

There literally is no place to hide. 

Murderers can remain at large for years, but let you get on the wrong side of the Intelligence Agencies -- BAM!

Of course, your phone does not have to be turned on to tattle on you.

 The software inside your phone pinpoints you whether it is on or not.


Something in your phone known as an accelerometer.

It's a tiny chip inside your phone that measures whether you're holding your phone horizontally or vertically, 

so the phone can alter its screen accordingly.

But in the same way your fingerprints are yours alone, so is your phone's signal.

Those imperfections mean your phone's unique signal can make your habits easy to track whenever your phone is in use.

Your phone's camera, gyroscope and microphones, among other parts, make you vulnerable as well.

That's any cell phone, too. Sigh.



  1. Well that Youtube does give one pause for thought. What does that mean for social media platforms, like Twitter where people are in constant interactions?

    As our reach becomes larger (global), our ability to remain private decreases.

    (Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.)

    Interesting and creepy. . .

  2. Sigh.
    Mind you anyone who expends time and energy keeping track of me and my doings will probably bore themselves to death (and certainly to sleep).

  3. Hi Roland - talk about man-power .. 3.5billion people listening to the other 3.5billion people talking ..

    No I can see the serious side and the inconvenience if one is harassed as the two ladies were ... and then if one is involved in a lawsuit - big business/other side could use it. Taking out the battery -it takes me forever to get the thing fitted.

    It's interesting to know about .. and somehow I hope someone puts a lid on it ... thanks for telling us - Hilary

  4. Didn't know these things. Eh, if they wanna bore themselves by following my movements they'll be sorely disappointed! LOL.

  5. D.G.:
    Yes, it is unsettling, isn't it? We may be opening ourselves up to unexpected trouble with our tweets and postings on FB.

    Elephant's Child:
    Like you, my initial reaction was "Let be bored." But the YouTube video lets us know that cyber-stalking can also be done by unbalanced individuals. Charles Manson, anyone. Brrr.

    The lawsuit aspect had not occurred to me: illegal wire taps indeed!

    I like my privacy, but it is the thought of being hounded and threatened by cyber unstable persons that is an unsettling thought! Thanks for visiting!

  6. Now I know why I fought a cell phone for so long...

  7. A good tip for those who do not trust their other half. I went ahead and found it This software has helped me to control and monitor every phone that I need. I'm not intruding in someone else's life, only in control of the life of my family.


  8. Very convenient and affordable way for those who do not want to pay for something once again. I recently found a convenient software for the phone, it allows you to read the most hidden corners of chat rooms
