Thank you, ScubaGravy!
I run Windows 10 Pro (ack!)- has internet access.
I'm not sure what version of Android is in my phone: LG G4- the features in original post are off.
Their photo showed up in my phone, but their photo was never on my cell or on the pc. I am wondering if maybe devices continually communicate & exchange any date through electronic frequencies, regardless if any of the items are off, no internet, share passwords, etc. Unless battery is removed...?

Thank you for sharing and your insight, Baddogma. Well said! That would make me uncomfortable, for sure.
The listening tech & ways of activating anyone else's, I'm sure is beyond anything I could imagine.

Yeah, well, coincidentally(?) after I posted about an alleged secret space program on this site, my phones started "randomly" videoing in the afternoon and evenings... for 2 years... I'd pick them up and they'd be recording, but without being on the camera function (or any other function remotely relevant).. . somehow.
My techie friends and even the guy at the store couldn't figure it out, either, and I hadn't touched them (or pocketed them) or added any shady apps... so? I'm open to me just being ignorant, buuut ...
we've known the government and tech companies, along with hackers of every hat color, can listen, see and record via every communication device since the 1980's... and now it's much, much worse... and out in the open, mostly.
Privacy is SO 20th century... get with the times.
