Hi there, I've read your post about NSA's spying on smartphones and also seen the article you've mentioned at The Spiegel. I'd like to have a quick guide or a set of recommendations on how to prevent such a spying. I cannot stop using a smartphone, because I need it for work, and for the same reason it contains some sensitive info. I want to make sure that all that data remains safe.

Hello, Bill!

First of all you should know that all modern smartphones are vulnerable, we've already written lots on it and there is no 100% reliable way to protect them. The only way to make your smartphone safe – is to make hacking it useless. Just don't store any sensitive info there and it will be fine. Also, we at jammer-store.com will provide you with basic safety rules, of using your smartphone. Most of the people ignore those and until it will be the same, the whole situation with smartphone safety will not change.

As we've already told, all those modern gadgets are vulnerable. Their most vulnerable spots are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules. Wi-Fi itself is hackable and that's how major part of smartphone hacks are done. Second is Bluetooth, it has almost the same security issues. But those problems can be solved by keeping those modules of, or using a 2.4 GHz signal blockers. Those don't disrupt mobile communications, so you will still be able to make and receive calls.

GSM protocol has a couple of serious security gaps too, because it is quite obsolete and cannot withstand modern threats. So, all you can do is avoid keeping important data on the smartphone, keep away from free, public Wi-Fi networks and keep an eye for the apps you install, malware can be found on a device that runs any OS.

Thanks for your question, I hope, I've managed to help!
