    Sure, but any phone has at least a contact list and photo's taken by the phone. My phone has a link to Lehigh Valley health network portal, if they could hack that they have my complete medical history, which is not much since I am in excellent health but my wife DOES have major medical issues, in hospital as we speak and if they were to hack into her health portal they would find many megabytes of medical data to such up into some Iranian data base or some such.

    We get smart phones without thinking about privacy issues so there is that.

    I have a few dozen apps on my phone already, for instance, I am an amateur radio operator (a 'ham'😉 and have the top FCC license and they could hack into the ARRL sight from there and maybe hack into THAT system using data from my phone.

    I guess the gist of all that is: Welcome to the 21st century......
