What -- mega tech take god out of house -- Los Angeles where news and technology collide even if you're -- a tech person.
This shows for you you have any questions you know -- conference on Twitter on FaceBook -- right here on Fox News -- now today we have a great comment a great story about everything to do with Smartphones and how.
They may be taking away your privacy.
Joining us now is Eric never bomb Eric you've -- before he comes to us from social media magazine planned a five by him at.
The real yeah -- ever bomb.
-- really have -- -- every -- we have you on how is it looked out your Twitter handle for some reason I can never read it correctly that you know lot of my first so my first one hadn't been hacked I would say it would be easy but.
My last -- still hard to benefit.
Right right a -- what we have up on the -- -- can actually follow you on Twitter.
Good information and I think this is really important especially with -- is coming out today in news and for that matter the last couple of weeks with the NSA.
And now we know a lot of Smartphones from foreign leaders have been watched.
But you -- we go back -- our own Smartphones we were traveling around as as one of my friends -- one of the agencies told me about a month ago.
In a lot of you -- turn your phone talking to your battery out we can still access the microphone to you still looks -- that access the camera.
And we know what time you get up -- what time you go to workers.
They obviously paying as you make your way down Santa Monica boulevard or however you happen to commute that's disturbing alone but there's a lot of things going on now with these new Smartphones and you can talk about in regards to our law.
The privacy well you know it's really up to it it's your choice what do you want to do how much do you want to give up.
I mean you know I I I I resist the fingerprint on I wanna give my finger prints out.
You know that's sad a majority of people you know -- funny I found.
They don't they don't use the security they don't -- the four digit security don't do it which means -- -- -- the neighborhood pick pocket can really easily get your phone.
And everything -- senate and you may think that that's not such a big deal but in New York City alone the crime rate went up just from people that we're stealing.
Iphones so it's it's not irrelevant but you know the fingerprint and going forward the fingerprint whether you -- -- give it up or not.
It's going to be used for a lot of things and were all into immediacy we don't have to type a lot of things to do things we want staff quit.
Fingerprint makes it quack.
It's not just for your iPhone can be for FaceBook and you can purchase things on you know I tuned -- to all sorts of stuff with your fingerprint if you will on the given up.
Right and -- for those who may not be totally tech savvy we talk about being a pre talk about the new iPhone which has been hit where it.
You basically I have the other iPhone the iPhone 5 without the fingerprint technology basically.
Your finger allows the person to you you're the owner to get on and potentially other people could use different different ways as well and I guess a concerted you're giving up your fingerprint there.
You have other apps on these phones that -- pictures up all your passwords can be under one thing unity -- take photos of your checks and access all your bank accounts I mean.
Basically your life is now on this.
Device that's right no matter how much -- protected it can be accessed.
That would that one of the problems has become for all of us even if we're not tech savvy -- for not intent.
You know anything attack you know most of us have some device.
-- we can't remember all of our passwords we got a different password for everything.
And everything aesthetic elect capital letter at number at -- there's a million different criteria is for it.
And how do you remember all your path secretly you probably storm on a piece of paper.
Inside a computer the -- computer can easily get -- Outlook is the fact the NSA probably can get into your computer no matter what any old time they want there's a trap door there's a backdoor.
They can access it.
That's that's just the fact it's.
Is the more the Edwards found materials come out the more the NSA materials come -- you can just see clearly that but the fact.
What isn't a fact -- as to what about the neighborhood pick pocket what about the guy in your neighborhood you can hack into your wireless system and -- who do you wanna protect yourself against now -- -- satire of the neighborhood pick pocket and I think the neighborhood pickpocket is probably less of a threat but everybody -- out of it.
You know that was you know we will with the new like with the new processors in the -- -- found.
-- -- -- 78.
In this phone basically it tracks everything.
It tracks whether you're running or walking which is great if you're into fitness and you wanna and had a fitness app but.
Your phone is basically.
A complete window and every single solitary thing that you dale.
For ever and it stays there forever.
Right Erica here's my concern with that.
And it is we've been told by the government -- were not doing this for not doing that that's complete baloney we know what they're using semantics.
So the fact of the matter is whether -- using the new iPhone with a new operating system or a Blackberry you know assuming there's still around him and I love my Blackberry or one of the other Smartphones out there.
The fact is they can access this stuff at any time it takes very little ability for them to do it's.
Very easy for them to do it yet and so I guess that comes down to the only way to split -- -- to get rid of it right.
Yet but we're not gonna do that we're all gonna buy more -- -- found the mean you know -- there's a small percentage of the country that are you know quote unquote resisters.
You know I mean it's part of Facebook's business -- -- need to convert the resisters to use technology but it's a small percentage.
You know AA I mean and as you shift down a generation you'll see the percentage -- less -- less and less than last -- -- I think smarter than a twenty year old as a ten year old and I think.
You know faster it's more than ten year old and a five year old not just the way it is they're big kids are born digital Mallon were.
We're into our third decade now people being born digital so we're not gonna get rid of our Smartphones were not gonna stop using our computers we're gonna use more of them.
And 88 it will mean that our privacy is you know up for -- -- how much up for grabs that's up to -- I guess the only way as you mention -- marketing your response policy sayings are Minnesota built into our lives are so many ways we can -- these are so there's so helpful really and so many ways mean.
I mean he never velocity -- that the -- there's some sort of addresses screwed up on the actual system was doesn't happen very often.
I mean these things have really answer a lot of questions and and make life a lot easier for a lot of people so I -- -- comes down to this.
The only way really to fight back is is if a grand majority of people stood up and went to the NSA error writing -- yes it went to the government said we demand.
More security we demand more privacy we demand that we have our rights back but.
Is that even.
I think -- I don't know aren't happy in a pandora's box -- opens I mean we're not we're not we're not getting -- -- -- -- -- -- -- can demand Ollie won we can pretend like we haven't but we down.
There's not a single solitary person.
You know in this country right now that has Smartphone that's walking around that that -- you can't simply be -- traced.
And recorded forever is that you know it just as it does -- and uprise all you want.
It's not gonna change anything so now you have to write with the fact of how private.
How much privacy do you want to protect -- and and that really -- you opt in all day long for stuff.
Yeah and and can't cut you off because only touch on this -- reports too late we have to go that is.
You can you can check out I can take these statements are commit second outside -- -- in the garbage cans and and and they be taken out the garbage dump and and they're nowhere near me ever again they can't track my my movements were running arm walking.
But my car's computer and I had a story this week that we're going to be looking into the fact that hackers and a hacking into refrigerators and and washers and dryers.
Basically no matter what you wanna do what do you think getting ready your Smartphones and give you privacy it's not because you being tracked.
-- -- that that's right look maybe I mean you just heard last week that you know former but the Vice President Dick Cheney was nervous about.
Again his pacemaker because it's operated by technology that somebody could -- that technology give my heart attack and you know I mean that's right out of homeland.
The as the in the VH BO series.
You know because it's possible I mean that in and that particular case you got a wave -- -- -- -- something else to someone who would have to actually get in the hospital but.
Yeah I mean.
You what you.
I've I've -- I would never throughout your Smart found.
I would make sure that that found -- has been completely cleared or just keep it in a safe for the rest of your life if you want your stuff private.
Yet because this stuff is still on -- it's in print on the you can you can deleted -- -- want to realize that can still be found and still be accessed even if you.
