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

“Don’t start nothing won’t be nothing.”

For every action there’s a reaction. But don’t provoke someone or something without clear conviction.

If you’re going to ruffle some feathers, do it because you really believe in change. And be willing to take full accountability for your actions.

Unfortunately, you’re not always going to win the fight, and certainly not in the beginning. Snowden called out the NSA for spying on the world and is barred from returning to the United States without a sentencing. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to make a statement about segregation yet found herself in jail.

Obedience is the end of freedom. In order to grab attention, you have to be willing to stake your claim and fight. You have to say what others are afraid to discuss; otherwise, things will just keep moving along as they are.

The audacity of hope is also the audacity to provoke.

Provocation ignites a healthy debate, one that gets others thinking differently about their own everyday beliefs.

What do you believe in? Playing it safe guarantees you’ll live a life of anonymity. But if you want to be remembered you’ll start something great and get people to rally behind your cause. We’re all just puzzle pieces trying to do the right thing.
