Shocking: Here’s Why Snowden Won’t Use An iPhone, And Neither Should You By DNA


In a recent article by Russian magazine Sputnik, Snowden’s previous claims that iPhones can be activated to spy on individuals re-surfaced when the whistle blower’s lawyer confirmed that Snowden himself would never use a smartphone.

“Edward never uses an iPhone, he’s got a simple phone,” Anatoly Kucherena told a Russian news agency last week. “The iPhone has special software that can activate itself without the owner, having to press a button and gather information about him, that’s why on security grounds he refused to have this phone.”

The above video examines Snowden’s claims and finds them to be entirely possible: the NSA can use your phone against you, and they can do this even when it’s switched off. What do you think? Does all this make you feel nostalgic for the glory days of bulky old Nokia handsets, or are you happy to forfeit privacy for new technology in the smartphone age?
