So to add to the further hub bub about Facebook messenger (or any mobile app) and the prlermissions society doesn’t want to give up, you should download and pay for at least one month of Lookout Premium. Scanned all of the apps on you phone to see what permissions you’ve already granted. You’ll be surprised what you find. Anyone wanna go back to using a flip phone (not the smartphone which will lead to the replacement of people by robots)?
I already know and accept the fact that big brother is watching me. On Star Trek, the Borg’s infamous statement was “Resistance Is Futile”. Change is inevitable so adapt and overcome, that’s my motto. Just my two cents.
