iPhone, BlackBerry, Gmail users are ‘all screwed’: Julian Assange
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has told smartphone users that they are vulnerable to a ‘mass surveillance’ industry that has been steadily growing since the September 11, 2001 attacks.
“Who here has an iPhone? Who here has a Blackberry? Who here uses Gmail? Well, you’re all screwed,” said Assange in this video taken during a speaking engagement at the Bureau of Investigative Journalism at the City University of London.
The warning came as Assange launched his website’s new Spyfiles project on Thursday.
The Spyfiles reveal the activities of about 160 companies in 25 countries which develop technologies to allow the tracking and monitoring of individuals by their mobile phones, email and Internet browsing histories.
