So I am reading this article about Christopher Steele from the New Yorker and see this “Faraday bag—a pouch, of military-tested double-grade fabric, designed to block signal detection”
… sounds so mysterious and spy gadget perfection that is just fun to speculate on …
So I do a quick search to see just how much these Faraday bags are or even if they are available? Sadly I see they are pretty common, so much of the super spy mysterious angel there. In fact there is a whole page on Amazon of them for under 100 and many under 20 bucks. Seems many professions, not just in intelligence carries them. Plus I am going to then guess that criminals as well carry them.
There goes the mystery element as logic sets in ……
Now here is my question: sure as long as a phone is in the bag it is concealed, but once you answer thus removing the phone from bag , is not that phone now exposed to being tracked???? Just saying unless you answer the phone inside the Faraday Bag , it does seem a bit silly to have or use.
Apparently as long as you do not use the phone from point A until you arrive at point Z, you cannot be traced along the rest that path. But that also keeps you from calls or having the need to make a call. So that leads to very short times you cannot be traced. If it is a stalker that one fears, they will have already tracked you before you are onto them, and know where that phone will be open. If you are hiding out from some potential illegal activity, well that we all know is a no no.
Now I can see them being useful in forensics as shown in this article: https://www.forensicmag.com/article/2014/02/need-faraday-bag. However there are limitations as noted here: http://www.forensicfocus.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=3914/
Seems there should be a better way….
