Can the NSA really listen to your iPhone’s microphone even when it is turned OFF? Experts say it is possible – but reveal the trick to beat it


  • Technique known as an ‘implant’
  • Allows phone to appear switched off – but still operate some communications

The NSA could technically listen in to the microphone of an iPhone even if it switched off, experts have revealed.

The claim was first made by Edward Snowden during an interview with Brian Williams of NBC Nightly News.

Today, experts confirmed the technique was technically possibly – and revealed a way to sidestep it.

Brian Williams of NBC Nightly News, holding his iPhone aloft during last Wednesday’s interview, asked, “What can the NSA do with this device if they want to get into my life? Can anyone turn it on remotely if it’s off? Can they turn on apps?

‘They can absolutely turn them on with the power turned off to the device,’ Snowden replied.
