    This is quite an interesting read for those into data Privacy and so on. All this worry about phone OS, when your own network that transports your data is the one giving it up.

    Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. In each of these cities, The Intercept has identified an AT&T facility containing networking equipment that transports large quantities of internet traffic across the United States and the world. A body of evidence – including classified NSA documents, public records, and interviews with several former AT&T employees – indicates that the buildings are central to an NSA spying initiative that has for years monitored billions of emails, phone calls, and online chats passing across U.S. territory.

    The NSA considers AT&T to be one of its most trusted partners and has lauded the company’s “extreme willingness to help.” It is a collaboration that dates back decades. Little known, however, is that its scope is not restricted to AT&T’s customers. According to the NSA’s documents, it values AT&T not only because it “has access to information that transits the nation,” but also because it maintains unique relationships with other phone and internet providers. The NSA exploits these relationships for surveillance purposes, commandeering AT&T’s massive infrastructure and using it as a platform to covertly tap into communications processed by other companies.

    yes , unencrypted data has long been known to be at the mercy of anyone with access to the network data via independent carriers. but if you use encryption they still get nothing of value without a key to decode. also . if you have stuff to hide . you shouldn't be using public services.

    If you believe the intelligence agencies exist to protect your country, you are naive to put it politely. A proper VPN service at least makes their monitoring activities that much more difficult.
