      So biased against apple, you are using its name to clickbait people into watching your videos. I like your work, but this is just bad faith and incorrect. Just to explain - of all the devices apple is still the hardest to hack. I mean even I can hack an android phone in no time, and never went to MIT... The competitors doesnt even try to protect user privacy - unless they can make good cash selling it to third parties.

    I noticed that bug too and I wasn’t wearing any pants or underwear. I was so nervous that it got uploaded or it was live. Then I immediately denied permission to access my camera for every apps from the settings.

    If I access your phone now it's called *hacking* ... if Facebook access it, which is your own propriety, it's called *a marketing study*. This should be a mass *lawsuit* against Facebook's terrorist decisions.

    Her friend works at apple. She takes her phone to Apple to be fixed by her friend. The friend finds the picture she took earlier and sends it to another friend. She sues Apple for millions and splits with friend that works at Apple.

    Why aren't you booking the f**king adds? Come on guys - who are you trying to impress? Be real - everyone hates the adds. It's also annoying to see it when you show stuff.

    If they don't already, soon enough... especially with quantum computing, they'll be able to predict where you're going to be and what you will be doing before you even make the choice. They're going to slowly get us more and more inundated with and so many angles for our data to be harvested from us that even after being as careful as we can be, they will still have enough of our data to know what we are going to do before we know what we are going to do.

    I'm young and could very easily work at an apple repair store, but I wouldn't take a picture, due to me properly seeing her gallery to send it, and seeing another persons "private photos" it would scar me. But because privacy is a bigger topic talked about on the daily, I would freak out too, the fact that there is no encryption law is kinda annoying and scary.

    Instagram does this too, my Samsung phone makes a little clicky noise when the front camera is activated, and when i'm in a quiet room and scroll my Instagram feed it makes the sound at random times.

    Fun fact
    When I broke my screen and went to the Huawei store, they told me to factory reset my phone before handing it to them, so I can be sure my info doesn't move around there.
    Of course, I could backup all the info into my SD card, a USB pen, etc

    Why would she keep personal stuff on her phone like that? She should’ve erased it before she brung her phone to the Apple store? 🤷🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️ Buuuut, then again,... 🤔🤔 She probably couldn’t do it because the screen was broken. Who knows? I will say this. “SHE DID THE RIGHT THING!” 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾 These teens, especially millennials, are idiots!!!! 😡😡😡😡 And this is why, “I’M NOT HIRING!” 🤷🏾‍♂️ They call it, the “GENIUS” Bar. 😐😑😐 Well,...He’s FIRED NOW!!! “Way-To-Go, Genius!!!!!!” 😠😠😠😠😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬 I didn’t know the Apple store had an Idiot Bar, too. 😳 Wow. Who knew? 🤷🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️

    I know that my microphone is on always. See, if I talk to myself, and right after that I search something, I get things suggested I just was talking about. Both in iOS and Android. But the software has become more clever. Back then, they sent every fart to the Internet, now they cache it, and send suspicious packets once in a while. The camera, I'm sure, is not so much of an issue. But the keyboard!
    And storage. Who believes still the lie about encrypted remote storage? Apple and Dropbox can't open our data, when they have issued the keys?
    And secure http and smtp and pop?
    And, did you know that RSA security has a macroscopic flaw nobody talks about? Even if they had no keys, they can crack any key in a question of seconds even on a normal 32 bit computer! Only a fool can miss the flaw!
    I am now over 40 years in this business and security is only relative to what you know!
