I never put into my phone certain things but camera is working 24/7 to market to you.

I put my phone in my purse when not in use to be safe.

I used to love the idea of smart phones. Computer in your pocket! Information really at your fingertips!

Then I figured out they were just spy devices, and that everyone can learn everything about you via app usage and where you carry the darned thing :( In the thread about the Secretary General of the USCCB being outed, while he shouldn't have had that position (or even be a priest), I mentioned the way he was "found out" (via phone apps and location) being a bad thing.

There are a couple of open source/free software phones in production now with physical kill switches to cut power to the cellular modem, wifi, microphone etc when you want those off. And they both separate the RAM being used by the cellular modem from the rest of the device (via a USB interface). On all other phones, the cellular modem (which runs its own operating system) can "snoop" on the RAM being used by the phone.

Unfortunately the better free software phone (which has kill switches on the outside of the case), the Librem 5, is expensive, and they are having trouble finding parts to ship to the initial backers (I have one on order from years ago at a much cheaper price). Parts costs went through the roof, and they raised their prices to match. Supposedly they are going to restart shipping later this month, but they have a big backlog to get through.

The cheaper one, and one I have now, is the Pinephone. The software does no spying. But your position is still pinpointed via the cellular modem. Pinephone has kill switches as well, but on the inside of the case, so you have to pop the back off to flip them.

Both are basically portable Linux computers with "a phone module included", and unfortunately take some technical aptitude when anything goes wrong (software not wanting to update, etc).
