Are you aware your Smartphone is also a Surveillance Device ?
It is unimaginable in Today’s world to separate an individual from his or her mobile device. The reality of living in a digital world is that every individual has to carry one of these devices just to stay in touch with each other. Owning a high end mobile Phone, therefore is increasingly becoming, if it has not already become, an existential phenomenon.
Yet only a small minority of informed individuals are aware that the modern day smartphone can be used as a surveillance device , to track your moments on a real time basis using the GPS Technology that is embedded in your smart phone circuitry and programmed into your device software.
The danger arising from the wrongful use of Technology that is meant to be a facilitator , is that it can also be used to track your whereabouts at any given moment of time.
What kind of safeguards must be employed then in order to de-risk ourselves from being tracked by private enterprises for their commercial interests and anti-national forces without our prior permission ?
A Public and Open discussion on this subject would be ideal n this regard covering aspects of Technology , Implementation, Infrastructure and the Law, so that proper steps can be taken to ensure that our rights as digital citizens are not compromised, by any person , or any private or public entity.
