I think it’s time we start asking for physical buttons that act as kill switches for the mic and camera
I don’t see a reason not to add these on the side of the phone. You flip the switch and you KNOW that no hacker, company, or person can listen to you or see you, then you flip the switch back when you feel comfortable or want to use the phone.. I personally still feel exposed even if the phone is turned off in my drawer …any thoughts on how this could be a negative besides cost or design which shouldn’t be affected in a bad way imo .. anyone agree that we should start demanding this because it’s 2019?
Edit: I’m talking on ALL devices. iPad MacBook iPhone iPod touch and HomePod .and Apple TV if it has a mic
Edit 2: Other companies already do this with their laptop and smartphones
Edit 3: last thing I wanted to add. This may sound paranoid but this is tech and no matter how advanced it is there seems to always be bugs and some don’t get found out until it’s too late
Edit 4: bear with me here lol last thing I promise. Add a killswitch for gps or location tracking apps that may be running in the background or tracking without our knowledge
