Security and privacy on phone and overall

Posted 03 July 2020 - 02:17 PM

Hi,

I am walking around with 3 phones at the same time, one that I bought with card payment, and 2 that I bought with Cash.

One of the two that I bought with Cash I have called with my ordinary number on phone 1 (bought with card)

2 of those phones are smartphones and one is old-school with no gps or anything.


I am just a ordinary guy that believes privacy is my right, because I have been born to this world and I don't know the real reason so why would I be open with my privatelife with anyone interested in looking into it?


I want to be this "cool fake ass bitch" that has a ordinary life but he is living triple life's at the same time :whistling: because I am cool, or many I have multiple personal disorder ;)

Hey how am I supposed to have a private life and be treated as a normal guy at the same time?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Nothing in your original post would prevent you from going to a park and not having helicopters flying over you with some intent or purpose.

So what does having three phones have to do with police helicopters?

Why would having only one phone have to do with police helicopters?

This might require you to have a conversation with your mother.

Do any of those 3 phones have an OS that's from a company with a business model based on selling advertising? If so, why would you think they'd respect your privacy?

In other words, you now have three phones bought with a card.

https://www.informit....aspx?p=2021961

You see, while you're busy walking around, you're potentially leaving a trail of logging information at each cell tower indicating when each phone connected to a particular base station, and when that communication was handed over to the next cell.

What's going to stick out like a big neon sign is the persistent close proximity of the handover logs of your 'card payment phone' along side two mysterious phones only traceable to cash payments at some convenience store.

To anyone who bothered to look, it would be very easy to conclude that all three belong to the same person.

Why use a cellular phone, when you can use an old non-working phone as a wifi device with a SIP client? You gotta think larger than "paying wish cash"

Having 2 burners just indicates you're probably a criminal and will make you even more suspicious, especially with them being on the same person as your main phone.
