Be careful, the NSA(National Security Agency) is watching. The NSA was developed in order to collect, devode, translate and analize global information at the range of online conversations. Despite this fact, today’s rumours consider the NSA a matter of divine organization, capable of intercept and control information at a world wide scale. More, thanks to modern technology, this is much easier for them to listen to our conversations, as the smartphones we’re using are not called ‘’smart” for nothing.
Just think about this: if your phone can record calls, pin point your exact localization, take photos and more, all based on an intelligent operation system, what makes you so confident that you’re the true ruler of that system? Here are a few hints about how it works:
1. Tracking your movements. So I’ve heard you’re using a webcam for videocalling conversations with your friends. It would be a shame if someone would secretly open it just to track your movements, wouldn’t it? It’s not like you’re a criminal caught red-handed, but it doesn’t matter. Imagine you’re changing clothes or you’re caught in some disgraceful moments and lately you find yourself being appreciated on Youtube. It’s your private life that should not be disturbed. Though, just saying, the case of the student of University of Floride claimed to fix computer problems which in reality meant installing malware programs that allowed him to use the computer’s webcam (which he did) is not that bad. Well, he did get some nude pictures of some girls, but it’s not that bad, isn’t it? Ok, maybe it is.
This kind of technology is also used by the CEOs of many companies in order to get some feedback of their employees’s work. This way, they know exactly how the employee’s are spending their time, where and with whom.
2. Listening to your phone calls. As I’ve already mentioned, we can easily be listened thanks to modern technology and this is not all: we can also get our text message and online browsing data checked as well. There are companies developed just for this purpose and they’ve grown quickly. It seems like for a minor charge, one’s phone can be recorded from incoming and outgoing calls, text messages and web browsing data in order to be handed to the customer at his will.
3. Using the internet to get your personal info. You think you’re clever enough not to reveal your any sort of personal information that can in the end be harmful to yourself? Well, let me ask you this: have you ever googled your name? You can get a lot of information about a person just by searching his name on google. This information can vary, from adress, Facebook account, any public contests you’ve taken part into and so on.
Do you really think there’s no detail that can damage your image in there? Of course, for better prepared ones, your name means a freeway to your adress and personal information which can lead to a highway to your bank account. It is very easy to find out someone’s data as long as you’re willing to spend some bucks and you should know for sure that once one has no regrets in paying to check you out, you’re in big trouble.
Take care of yourself. Don’t go with the crowd: intelligent technology overpowering stupid people.
