Edward Snowden Explains How Big Tech is Using Your Cell Phone to Spy on Every Move You Make
The former NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. In the more than two hour interview, Snowden touched on many subjects including how big tech is using your smart phone to spy on you.
"The central problem with smartphone use today is that you have no idea what the hell it's doing at any given time," he told Rogan. "The phone has the screen off, you don't know what it's connecting to, you don't know how frequently it's doing it."
He goes on to say that the ideal way to prevent a phone from doing any tracking is taking out the battery, however, many phones today don't have that option.
