Textalyzer Device Tells Police Everything Users Do on Their Smartphone
An electronic device called “Textalyzer” has recently made headlines showing how it can help law enforcement authorities to tackle the issue of distracted driving. But the privacy advocates are calling it a privacy invasion.
Textalyzer is an electronic tablet size device which will allow the cops in the United States to see if drivers have been using their cellphones whilst driving. That’s not all; the device aims to crack down suspects by recording their every click, tap or swipe. It would even know what apps the drivers are using. Police officers can also download all the data from the suspect’s smartphone within a few seconds right on the spot.
“We’re not getting anything about what was said in the texts or who it was said to. Just the touches and swipes.”
