Smartphone, a Spy in your Pocket

You've seen the latest episode of Envoyé Spécial (french TV).
It's kind of scary ...

Especially about one story about our phones and the numerous data shared through them that are sold, shared and used, most often without our consent.

In my last video, I go over all the data that are shared through our phones.

Understanding the amount of data shared and try to limit it is a good starting point.

But also understanding what data hackers might be trying to get on my phone is important.

And finally, that everyone understands that it is essential to reset your phone when you sell it as a second-hand device. 😉
