I recently heard about the duct tape theory a few stripes of duct tape in between your phone and case it blocks a certain signal leaving the device. This signal is supposed to be the reason nobody can hide their data usage. Anyone test this theory? :confused:

The signal you would need to block to prevent data harvesting would be WiFi & Data lol


The phone is running a Google OS, that OS is connected to the net, it can call home with whatever it likes whenever it likes


Whoever told you about duct tape probably uses it to keep their tin foil hat held together


You'd need to encase the entire phone in a signal blocking material to prevent that, and there is no secret signal, it talks to Google / Facebook etc etc via the internet
