Let’s do a short safety communication review: can you talk safely on a PC? No, you can get viruses, your computer can get hacked, the internet is being watched 25/7 (the 5 was not exactly a joke). Can you do it on a phone? You’re on a network that is being listened to 25/7 again, internet again, apps are being watched. Everything is not private.
So what is private nowadays? You might be surprised, but if you want to talk to somebody without the fear of being watched by Big Brother, you want to turn your eyes towards the iPod Touch. Again, this is not a joke. It’s 100 percent real and we’ll even tell you why: it’s not connected to anything.
It is on no cellular network, at least not at the moment. It can run on a pretty ok operating system and you can talk to anybody without having to think about who would hack you right here and right now.
It’s good if you want to talk to a private investigator, it’s good for planning a surprise and if you are wondering how you can hide your Ashley Madison account right now, you can do it here, so you might as use it now while you still can. Just make sure that your device is Wi-Fi only.
Yes, this is the trick. If you want to have your messages 100 percent secure, you need to keep it updated with every little patch you can find out there, lock it down whenever you need to do so and, of course, install some encrypted comm app. Do all of these, and the world will not be able to expose that you’re Batman for a good period of time.
Now let’s talk about the Wi-Fi feature. This is the only life-saver right now because phones are permanently connected to cell towers. Once connected, anyone with the right conditions can know who you are, where you are form, your number, credit card details, anything. But the iPod? It has no baseband or SIM card, so it’s not like you’re carrying a beacon with you.
So there you go: your own private messaging system, with voice and text included, personal info off the radar. You need to make sure your device is fully secured, though. Have a strong password, never ever broadcast your data and make this iPod your new best friend. It might be the most secure one you’ll have in the following years.
