Snowden is working on an untrackable iPhone case


Edward Snowden is developing an iPhone case that will let you know if if you’re being tracked.

According to the US’s “third party doctrine,” the government has the right to hack into your phone’s signals and steal it’s metadata, including your email and photos.  Even phones on “Airplane mode” can still be hacked.

This is why Snowden hasn’t owned a mobile phone since 2003. Phones are “kind of like kryptonite to me” he told Wired.

Snowden is collaborating with hardest hacker Bunnie Huang on the build. While their device is mainly for journalists, they want to make it available to anyone looking to go off the grid.

“We want to give a you-bet-your-life assurance that the phone actually has its radios off when it says it does.” – Bunnie Huang
