You would be surprised to know why this is not true. Most people actually don't even know it can/should be uninstalled, they think of it as some manufacturer utility.

Most of the times it is just 1 month ver, so people most probably remove it after it expires, some even purchase and the trick of intel works :p

Again, you would be surprised to know how many people "choose" to keep running its expired version.

After expiry, it keeps poping up so people get annoyed and they need to go one way, so either they purchase or delete. Yes some people do keep living with that popup , so did i mentioned Most probaby, certainty lies that people may live with it.

Can any android or Mobile app access camera, calls, message, files, without showing allowed/denied permission in app's permission settings?
Also root permission granted apps, can access these camera, call, sms permission without asking? While not showing it in app's permission settings?

There are many backdoors in android, so there is high possibility.

Actually yes but no. Once you give root, you give permission to do anything including bypassing permission requests. But no because usually the root manager, has control over what activities can be done. Like superSU used earlier or magisk used now, all have control over it. But even they can be bypassed. So better to buy nokia phone and not run any jar file on it. Or buy a telephone but make sure the line is not tapped.



Regarding surveillance, IMO in a country like India, nothing much can be done. Here most of the "youth" activists have actually done bad things and had links with many terrorist orgs. But again, not all are like that. There are many who want to do good.

This is helpful in case suppose some country sends some spies in the form of activists, it can be troublesome. There are many who play the journalist/activist card when they are caught doing some bad shit.

All of us are under surveillance. No where to hide. As our lives are connected to the informational web,so do the govt,corporates,companies,
hackers, keep a spider eye upon us,just waiting to jump when the time comes.
You need to get out of the grid...to remain anonymous(which is near to impossible for leading our so called natural lives).

AGAIN,NO WHERE TO RUN...NO WHERE TO HIDE...

Well we can make someone anonymous.

But it is only possible till he doesn't have any account on any social media. Now most of us have an account there so nothing can be done.

Even a new born baby has birth certificate so even that is not anonymous. Only way to remain anonymous is secretly go to sentinel island and live there without getting killed.

Beyond Earth,but not in space(inside a spaceship/starship...whatever you call),because inside a spaceship you are well connected through all communication channels.

Where did you learn that? In case you don't know, almost no "youth activist" in recent years has ever been found guilty by high court/supreme court even if case dragged on for years.

^ It seems a configuration problem. Maybe your webcam is enabled,so due to privacy issue,this pop up is shown.
Re-configure e-set through settings again.

This advert being is widely circulated on FB nowadays(See attachment).Its purportedly a remake of the Contra game by some unknown studio called Raize gaming.

I assumed it was what it claimed to be,moreover as it was being advertised on FB i thought it was legit.After downloading this so-called game from their link,i found that it didn't work and was demanding that i install some "simulator" to get it to work.

Frustrated i gave up trying,but shortly afterwards an executable of the game that was running in the background was flagged by AVG as a malware(bitcoin miner) and was blocked.

This set off some alarm bells,so i checked the FB post once again where i got it from,and surely discovered that many others had also reported the same issue-that it was being flagged as a malware.It was my mistake for not having checked the comments thoroughly before proceeding to download this fake game-actually i didn't think any app that was being advertised on FB would contain malware,as i assumed they would have verified it before allowing it to appear on their website.

I ran a full system scan with avg and it came up clean in the results.I even scanned my system with malwarebytes and hitman pro but they couldn't find any traces of that malware either.

However much to my surprise,i found that the executables were still running from multiple places within my primary drive (C : ) after i rebooted my system,and quite inexplicably AVG was not detecting them.So i manually found their source folders using task manager and deleted them all,only to find them still appearing again upon the next reboot.

So this time i downloaded Eset online scanner and ran another system-wide scan but it came up empty as well.I couldn't imagine that some of the oldest and the most reputable AV products like ESET ,AVg etc were failing to detect this generic bitcoin mining trojan.

As a last resort,i scanned my system using a tool called rogue killer,and it did manage to detect multiple traces of the app on my C: drive and deleted them all !! I hope i wont find it running again upon the next reboot!

I reported this ad to facebook multiple times,but they rejected it claiming that it didn't violate any of their "community guidelines"!! (go figure!!)

Please beware of this,and if you chance upon this ad,do report it straight away!
