Is the government spying on the people of America?
As we all are aware, the government is said to be spying on us all the time. we believe this is true because there has been proof of it. Like for example the government watches you through your phone camera can see what you’re up to and also what you do every day. Edward Snowden, a former ex-spy came forward and explained that even when your phone is completely powered off, the government hackers can still see and hear you with the camera and microphone.
It’s not just phone cameras, it’s also your search history too. The government can see your search history online even if you’re on a private page. That won’t protect you from government spies tapping into your business. You must think it’s just cameras or portable devices that allow the government to spy on you right? Well….. With the new technology coming out every year it gets worse and worse. Samsung, the million dollar electronic company, released a tv with a built in microphone, and people just thought that was super cool, but there was this tweet that exposed Samsung for helping the government spy on us. The tweet went on talking about not to talk about personal information or sensitive information because the microphone in the tv can hear and record everything.
Even apps are being monitored as well. One app favored by teens these days is snapchat, the app with dog filters and cool visuals to enjoy. Well a lot of people who use it don’t know that when you send a picture to someone, people who work for the company can see it all. Another famous kids app is talking Angela, even though this was proven fake, it did raise a bunch of eyebrows when, the main character Angela, was asking weird questions like “where do you live?”. For a long time people really thought someone was spying on us with this app. Even though it was fake and was safe to use there are still a bunch of apps that use this techniques to spy on us.
While our portable devices and everyday home things maybe be spying on us, it's still not enough for the government. They’ve been sending out drones on the skies to look over people and basically stalk them. You can see on YouTube, people recording a hovering drone in the sky with cameras. Honestly it's an invasion of privacy because your Address, your face, and basically all your information it's out there in the open for not only the government but some creepy stalkers as well. So all in all the yes we feel like the government is using today's tech to stalk us and we should all be careful of the stuff we do nowadays.
