How to Remove the New Trace-and-Track Spyware From Your Phone

by delarue

You may have heard about the trojan horse tracking device hidden inside current updates for iphone and Android. It’s Bluetooth-enabled: it picks up and stores the identity of every other Bluetooth device which comes within six feet, and the other devices do the same with your phone’s info.

Here’s how to get rid of it:

FOR IPHONE

1. Go to Settings

2. PRIVACY

3. Click on the HEALTH icon (❤️)

4. Make sure to deactivate the Covid 19 function.

FOR ANDROID

1. Go to Settings

2. Select Google

3. Click on the 3 dots at the top right

4. Click use / diagnosis

5, Make sure to deactivate the function

Insructions for Galaxy are here.

For other phones, using airplane mode deactivates Bluetooth. If you have more than one phone, consider using one as a landline – or, OMG, consider getting a landline. If you’re using a cellphone as a landline, make sure you keep it at least six feet from the walls of adjoining apartments, and six feet from outside hallways so your neighbors don’t register on it.

Choose one phone for personal use (the landline or “landline” is preferable) and the other for business. That way, if the lockdowners want to trace someone at your workplace for any reason, your friends won’t get caught in the trap.

Please share this far and wide!
