Spy Agencies Can See What Everyone Does with Their Phones While On a Plane.

 

 

For those who value their privacy, a new investigation by Le Monde based on secret documents from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden has it that the British and American intelligence agencies have been monitoring your phone use while on a plane.

As a matter of fact, just turning on your phone when the plane is above 10,000 feet reveals your location, and this has been happening as far back as 2005!

According to QZ, some of the information, these spy agencies have access to include:

  • BlackBerry PINs and email addresses
  • Email addresses
  • Skype identifying data
  • Facebook identifying data

The British intelligence agency GCHQ even claims that phone users on a plane mostly check their Emails, Facebook and Twitter accounts, use apps like Google maps and currency converters, and download stuff on BitTorrent.

So, what can you do to protect yourself while traveling to the US or the UK? Put your phones in flight mode!
