Should You Use a Dumb Phone for Privacy & Security?

The constant stream of news regarding mobile phone spyware (e.g. Pegasus) and hacks may have you wondering – should you use a dumb phone for privacy and security? We often see criminals in movies and TV using dumb phones as burners, but does this really make you more private and secure relative to using a smart phone? We answer these questions in this episode, as well as impart some cold, hard truths about the privacy and security implications of voice (PSTN) and SMS. Finally, we wrap up by explaining some of the ways you can improve the security of your smart phone and why this matters. Buy a good quality smart phone, harden it, and keep it up-to-date before you get pwned. Visit us at to request a consultation or read our blog.
