Whether you realize it or not, the internet collects a lot of your personal information. The majority of websites and apps track you to learn about your habits and preferences to send you advertisements that are applicable to you. This may not be a trade-off you're willing to accept if you value your privacy.
For a snapshot into this, The New York Times released a report demonstrating how easy it is to identify and locate people using anonymized data collected by apps and websites on our phones regularly.
Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and a slew of other companies rely on mobile advertising to make money, and they need this data to power their data-mining machinery.
If you're reading this and think you'd like to reduce tracking across websites and applications.
Fight the advertising directly. When websites ask to use your location check no, and use the latest iOS and Android updates to limit your applications from tracking you.
These tools will not wholly prevent firms from tracking your phone activity, nor will they minimize the number of advertisements you view. But they will allow you to reset your advertising ID and unlink any targeted advertising profiles linked with your device.
There are a number of private browsing options that allow the user to limit their known activity on the web. Make sure to do your research on that the browser is actually advertising - see latest google "incognito mode" issue.
This allows you to browse the web completely securely by masking the location of your IP address.
You can disable tracking on iOS and Android, but the process isn't easy; the option is tucked away under privacy settings. The default setting is to record your daily activities. It's called "Frequent Locations," and it keeps track of where you've been and how long you've been there.
It can even tell where you live and work depending on how long you've been there and how many times you've visited. Turn off the function if you find it unsettling.
Always check the permissions that apps will demand on their Google Play or Apple App Store app page before installing them. When you install an app on an Android phone, it will also show you a list of permission requests. When you use an iOS app that requires special access to your device, you'll usually get a permission access pop-up.
Apps may occasionally request more information from users. This information can then transferred to firms for advertising purposes.

Music is a necessity for me. My i-pod needs protection also, as my info is on it as well as my music. This sleeve fits it perfect.
I had to upgrade my phone and was extremely concerned with the 5G capabilities. This bag completely blocks ALL signals. I place my phone in my bag when I go to bed at night! Would 100% not only purchase again, but would purchase for friends/family, too! 5 stars!!
Perfect for blocking signals and also a day on the boat. 10/10 definitely recommend.
A must have for anyone whom privacy is important 5 star product
Thank you guys for supporting the fight for our right to privacy and combating mass surve.. Keep up the good work, the bag is amazing quality and I love the privacy stickers. Thanks a lot SLNT
I bought 4 Faraday Silent Pockets after reading about car fob venerability. I feel must more secure now. Get yours today to stop thieves from duplicating your fob’s signal anywhere!
I absolutely love my backpack I purchased… we need to protect our privacy now more than ever. I don’t travel without this & neither should you 😎
This is definitely a great bag for your phone. It sure seems to block everything I have tried to throw at it. Will be purchasing more!
Seems to work as expected. Hope to never do a hard test. Feel my backups are now well protected.
I purchased the SLNT pocket that an iphone 11 with an Otter Box fits in. The quality of the finished product is HIGH. I'm not addicted to my phone, so this allows me to place the phone in the pocket before traveling about daily without dropping digital crumbs along the way that could be used to reverse engineer my personal movements, locations and destinations with greater ease. I value my privacy due it being a fundamental human right despite what any judge or agency claims to the contrary.
I was very pleased to realize that this particular SLNT fits into my back pants pocket!!! The width is 'just right'. Now that's attention to detail. This is my 3rd SLNT and I recommend them to a lot of folks. Most have never heard of such a product, let alone the reason to have one and use it.
To anyone considering these products, as others have said, just get it! We live in an age where we need it. Location tracking is digital stalking. I really appreciate that some dirtbag won't be able to pull info out of my device either. Thank You SLNT, nice job.
Excellent quality, handsome, fit well, I like them and use them. Good to have protection.
Live in a condominium area. Thank you for giving me back my privacy!!
My laptop is now waterproof, padded and protected from solar flares, EMP's, hackers and trackers.
And it looks good too
4-5 starts.... well made, great function ...not only do I feel like I've helped secure my privacy but when I place the phone in the pocket I am able to disconnect from tech and have quiet private time with less stress and fewer distractions. Psychologically its been a great aid to me.
The Silent Pocket is a fantastic accessory, I am sleeping better with lack of EMF in the room and knowing that my privacy is literally in my hands.
Shipping took very little time, very happy!
