Stand & Deliver: Your Privacy & Your life

Now for the Really Scary Stuff

About 12 months ago Apple lost a court case prohibiting people unlocking their phones, and going with a cheaper tariff, and allowing people to run third party apps on their phones.
At the same time, Apple were applying for a patent to collect and store customer information, in order to wipe the phone clean, and disable it in the event of it being stolen. Good news you may think: well think again.
The patent will allow Apple to fit a microphone to the phone which will work when the phone is switched on, transmitting the information to Apple. Not important you might think! What about when you are having negotiations with a client for a new contract: it won’t take long before hackers work out how to record the information as well as Apple. Do you leave your phone on a bedside cabinet at night? Would you like somebody listening in? Is this really scary or not?
The phone can take a picture of you without you knowing! This information will help apple determine whether or not you are the authorised user of the phone. Apple will then have the option to disable the phone. Apple will store the biometrical image, really scary when your wife or family use your phone.
The phone can take a picture of your surroundings without you knowing! To help recover the phone in the event of it being stolen. Apple will also know what shops you go into, what you buy etc etc.
The phone can take a copy of your unique heart rhythm. And of course store the information.
The phone will also track which websites you go on! And store the information. Does this sound really scary to you?
The phone will obviously track and record your phone calls and emails! Does this sound really scary to you?
The phone can also be closed down if Apple thinks you are using your phone in a way Apple consider ‘unauthorised’! For instance if you use an unapproved third party app, [perfectly legal] or if you remove the sim card.

The Phone can record the user's voice, whether or not a phone call is even being made.

In the event of what Apple consider an infringement, whether legal or not, Apple will contact a ‘responsible party’. This could be the phone’s owner, or possibly the police, or any other enforcement agency, government department.To recap, Apple will know what you look like, and your family, it will know where you are, where you have been, who you talked to and what you bought. It will record and store your telephone calls, your emails, and your surfing habits. Apple haven’t said who they will share this information with, law enforcement agencies the world over will be queuing up to get full access. Advertisers will pay a fortune for your buying habits, and the insurance companies won’t be far behind them.
The hackers will make a fortune selling your information, or using it for their own criminal gain.

Now that’s Really Scary Stuff.
