"Hey can I use your phone?"
-"Sure, give me a minute to clear my search history."

At best this sounds sketchy.

RE: Multitasking button on smartphones to spy on you
Some of you are walking the line of the some of the blue-pill morons on cell forums, basically, a position of "if you don't like it, too bad, that's the way is".

It's really not a huge deal, I'm only pointing out they've made it impossible to deactivate that and I believe it's intentional. Certain people in this world are very sneaky and not to be trusted, I'd prefer having that multitask thing turned off.

It's also the same with ios7 now.

It has not been like that for years, my friend. If what la-mode says is true, he has great cause for concern.

Here is an article from 2011. It has gotten worse since then.

Quote:In a case explicitly decided to set a precedent, the California Appellate court has determined police officers can rifle through your cellphone during a traffic violation stop.

This is not the first time such a law has been under scrutiny. In April, the Blaze told you about the extraction devices police were using in Michigan to download the entire contents of your phone.

Florida and Georgia are among the states that give no protection to a phone during a search after a violation has been committed. In particular, Florida law treats a smartphone as a “container” for the purposes of a search, similar to say a cardboard box open on the passenger seat, despite the thousands of personal emails, contacts, and photos a phone can carry stretching back years.

But after initially striking down cell phone snooping, California has now joined the list of states that allow cops to go through your phone without a warrant if they decide to impound your car.

It all began with a traffic stop, and a driver with some gun photos on his phone.

You can read the rest of the article here:

Ok, I got your points. Still think this isn't a big deal, but since this is your lucky day, I found something - just launch any app using this app and it won't show in recent apps list, or create a widget on your homescreen for any app you don't want shown.

Check out my thread Essential android tools for modern players and alphas to find out how to make your android phone your wingman, or click here and scroll down if you only need to root it.


Want sound that puts iPods and iPhones to shame? I got you covered!
