How to Protect Your Phone From NSA Spying

covermeEvery day it seems there is a new revelation about just how much the NSA is spying on all of us. The latest is that the NSA spies on 5 billion cell phones around the world daily.

But thankfully there are services to help you encrypt your communications and Internet behavior. The latest is an app called CoverMe, which promises “military-grade encryption” for your texts, phone calls, as well as photos, videos and documents. The app lets you encrypt messages, create self-destructing messages, host private group calls and wipe you phone free from call data.

According to the company, they have already seen more than 500,000 downloads across their iPhone and Android apps.
