Our Sneaky Phones
John Stossel 9:20 AM | February 23, 2024

The government and private companies spy on us.

        My former employee, Naomi Brockwell, has become a privacy specialist. She advises people on how to protect their privacy.

        In my new video, she tells me I should delete most of my apps on my phone.

        I push back. I like that Google knows where I am and can recommend a "restaurant near me. I like that my Shell app lets me buy gas (almost) without getting out of the car."

        I don't like that government gathers information about me via my phone, but so far, so what?

        Brockwell tells me I'm being dumb because I don't know which government will get that data in the future.

        Looking at my phone, she tells me, "You've given location permission, microphone permission. You have so many apps!"

        She says I should delete most of them, starting with Google Chrome.

Never owned a smartphone.
Never will own one.

I do have a "flip" cell phone.
But you can't reach me on it.
It's always turned off and put away...

Nothing sneaky about it. They're promiscuous as all get out. And they tell you they are.
