1 A Smartphone case that prevents users being spied upon
Edward Snowden’s blueprints of his latest invention could well prevent the abuse of digital surveillance. In collaboration with Andrew Huang, a software engineer who holds a PhD in electrical engineering from MIT, Snowden has drawn up blueprints to create the remarkable Smartphone case that will allow users to know via a notification that they are under digital surveillance. The case will be engineered to sound an alarm whenever it senses data being received or releasing signals through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or any radio connection featured on the device.
The case will also be armed with a switch called a ‘Kill switch’ which will force disconnect the phone’s power if any unauthorized signal is observed transmitting data without user knowledge. Thus, if you are under surveillance and your phone has been tapped to transmit personal information such as your calls or releases tracking records, you will immediately be notified and then all you need to do is kill the power which will end all possibilities of surveillance. The case also prevents video recording from the rear camera.
