This article is about spyware on your cell phone, here is a quote from the article:

"Do not give your cell phone number to strangers or post it on the Internet. Spyware can be installed on your phone from a remote location simply by calling it."

This makes me think of how facebook demands your cell phone number and encourages you to upload all your contact information with your friend's cell phone numbers to facebook.

Uploading everyone's cell phone numbers to facebook surely qualifies as "giving your cell phone number to strangers"?

10 yrs later and this is more true now than ever!

However... how do you not "put it on the internet" when everywhere requires it, for a simple purchase?!

Best is NOT to have your phone fused to your palm. Buy a goddamned laptop and do your work on that, and NEVER EVER use your phone for ANYTHING other than calls and texts. Problem? SOLVED! Fuck your apps, everyone! NEVER bank on your phone. EVER!
