Default Crazy Phone Conspiraciesas

Lets hear some theories as to what the evil companies who sell us our phones are really doing with all the data we give them.

Such as my attic which now has my finger prints and that data could be shared with law enforcement potentially without my knowing consent as the tos could change at any moment really.

They could also be using my GPS data to tell when and how often I drive above the speed limit.

Any other ideas?

PS now they know I'm onto them

I heard that if they have suspicion of you breaking the law they can use your mic to listen to what your doing.

If you're in the United States they can, it's called the "Patriot Act" What's so patriotic about invasion of privacy?

They do that in Iran too, and even if your phone is off! You can only extract the battery to prevent this.
