TVP #50: Anonymous and Encrypted Phones – Is It Possible?

On this installment of The Vonu Podcast, we continue our crypto-anarchism series with a discussion on whether or not it is possible to have anonymous and encrypted phones — in other words, is privacy technologically mobile?


PRE-ORDER MY BOOK, VONU: A STRATEGY FOR SELF-LIBERATION !


We begin by covering the lack of 4th amendment protections on this technology by looking at case precedent, we cover my article which shares the same title as this episode, we briefly discuss the Dark Android Project, we decide whether or not the recently adjudicated case, Carpenter vs. United States, No. 16-402, increases privacy, and conclude with a quick look at the alleged “anonymous” phones out there today.

The John McAfee “privacy” phone.
