    You people ridiculously overvalue your importance – NO ONE CARES !! There is no boogeyman looking to hack into every aspect of your worthless mundane existence. You are nothing and nobody.

    You must be a iPhone user because you are all wrong about Android.

    You cannot change permissions on Android without rooting the phone. Android updates are controlled by the phones providers "Rogers, Bell, etc…" not the OS developer "Google". They choose when to push updates and often never patch phones with the latest updates.

    People need to understand their phones better than they do. Sort of like driving. Understanding the rules helps with making you safe.

    Snowden says take out the internal cam and mic and use external cam and mic.

    Alternatively, you can cover your phone inside a bag, just have to remember to use it.

    As for online presence such as social media and email, good luck.

    Reasons to hide your identity or information: marketing, stalkers, haters, safety, intellectual property theft, and so on.

    The argument that you have nothing to hide is invalid.

    Should I still update my software if that involves unlocking the bootloader and installing cyanogenmod?

    Can you give more info on the text sent from a random number? How can we fix it if we opened some already that are from unknown numbers? Can we track who sent it? Are there ones from Facebook letting you know how many notification s and pokes you might have real?

    I was angry when he said install only apps from official stores like Google play and Apple store. I was wondering why he forgot the Windows store

    Your advice is wrong. I checked my settings, and the app permissions could not be changed. So what is up with your pretend sliders showing that they can be changed?
