The expert noted that smartphones are able to "listen" to their owners without their knowledge, if during the installation of some applications, access to the microphone was allowed.

For protection, Vakulin said, you can limit the number of applications with access to the microphone so that sensitive information does not leak out.

“If there is access (to the microphone. - Ed.), Then the application can turn on the microphone at any time convenient for it and collect information,” the specialist said.
