Big Sis is watching

Watch what you say.
There's no means of electronic communications that are secure.
Your phones, especially your smart phones, can get you into some serious trouble by providing LEO with evidence. Don't use them. Leave them at home so they can't be used as a GPS locator.
Just sayin'.

Faraday Cage! Easily built. Build one so you can drop a phone right in. They can slide right into your pocket. GPS dead, but so is your signal until you take it out to use it.

For that matter, you could just shut it off...

Non-class info ....

Phones can be remotely controlled to turn on, take pics, send images, and pass along identical remote-action protocols to any other phone they contact ....

all without any of the sound or visual prompts they'd normally generate when so doing

Phone looks off ? Hasn't taken a picture ? Sorry comrades, it's on, and it took a pic, no sound

NO MEMORY IN YOUR SYSTEM EITHER ...

hell, even my drone-phone appends GPS lat-long to a pic it takes, so use old-fashioned compass triang to mark key sites

any oldies like me remember the Clipper Chip backdoors ?

what he said, in spades

Leave the damned thing at home. As soon as you reinstall the battery, they have a fix on you. Leave your leash/security blanket at home.

A role of quarters and pay phones ... if you can find 'em.
