Particularly disturbing to a law firm these days is the potential that client meetings, conferences… can be secretly monitored via the attorney’s own cell phone. Remotely accessing the phone’s “firmware” (hard drive), a would-be audio (and with smart phones, video) thief simply needs to scan for your phone’s frequency signature and bounce back an electronic tracer signal. In less than a nanosecond, the attorney/client confidentiality is breached.
The tech and investigation experts in the above video show and tell you how to detect a tapped cellphone… give it a view. (And remember, your cell can be remote tapped – no need to have physical possession of the phone.)
Spoiler: the three main clues that your cellphone is tapped are:
1. It feels unusually warm.
2. The battery drains more quickly.
3. You get static feedback from speakers on other electronic equipment within range of your cell.
