Just don't plan on running for president one day or your "hot tub" talk will come back to haunt you.


I recall someone from the FBI or the CIA years ago promised that they would listen to us through our dishwashers.

...does your device already have it integrated without your knowledge?

Nope. Myself (and countless others) regularly do teardowns of new phones/laptops/etc, and thus far, none of them have any imaging hardware hidden behind the screens.

Similar patents go back to as far as 94



So, potentially, every modern computer, tv and mobile screen could have one already.

Well, alternatively, you can always monitor traffic sent from your computer to a remote address. In case someone is watching, you`ll be sending a large amount of bytes per second, similar to when you are watching live stream where data is recieved from a remote address.

You are right. However, anything that goes through your router can be monitored. Unless any of the devices work on radio signals, you can at least have some sort of control. This is why smartphones are not safe at all, yet every year more people have one. Oh well...who knew something like this could happen???

I gave up my cell phone for over 2 years. A change in my position to on-call, made it necessary for me to have a cell phone. After having my dumb phone for almost a year, my $25 a month fee got jacked up to $33 a month. I hate Verizon, but I live in an area where a cell signal is almost nonexistent with Verizon, and "is" nonexistent with any of the other carriers.

The first thing Verizon did when I complained about the increase in cost for nonexistent service, was to try to sell me a smartphone with LTE.

It suddenly became clear it was a ploy, to get me to give up my dumb phone for a smart phone. I am back now to being without a cell phone. I will just have to check in every 30 minutes, until I get to a place where I can provide them a contact call number. It may be a bit inconvenient, but I don't usually stray too far from home, when I am on call.

They do not make it easy for people to give up their cell phones. They are worse than drug dealers. They will do anything to get and keep you hooked, then beat you up if you try to escape.

You can always buy a burner phone. It`s still a pretty safe option if you don`t want to be tracked 24/7. In case if you are truly paranoid and want to avoid any contact with employees and cameras, you can always send someone else to buy one for you. There are still older version phones on the shelfs so no worries about them being smart

I didn't give up my cell phone because I was afraid of being tracked. It is way too late for that. I grew up in a military home. I had a Top Secret Security Clearance before I was 21. My step father was CIA, I am a Veteran, and I work for the State. I couldn't run, or hide if I wanted to.

I gave up my cell phone for a multitude of reasons, paranoia wasn't on the list. I was just preaching to the choir. We all know that they can track us anytime they wish to do so. I just refuse to pay a fortune of my hard earned money to make it any easier for them.

Aren't there TAO hackers and the entire Signals Intelligence Division monitoring everyone 24/7? So I guess, most if not all, precautions are pointless.

Like I read somewhere that with the data they collect, it's not about hacking anymore but sorting stuff out because of the massive amounts of info they gather...or something like that.

Ouch, yeah that would only make them more suspicious. I agree though, they are tracking you right now when you are browsing. Not necessarily in person but data is stored nonetheless. It`s best to just play along and disappear in the swarm of surfers. You know, doing the usual stuff like hanging around on social media (a lot), watching news, football (sports) and porn, and you`ll be fine
