Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says people should get off Facebook if they value their privacy.
The company is invading people’s privacy and the only way to get away from it is to leave, he suggested.
What’s more, people’s phones could be listening to them and there is “almost no way to stop it”, said the man who founded Apple alongside Steve Jobs.
Mr Wozniak left Facebook last year, deleting his public account in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data abuse scandal. He urged anyone else who is concerned about their privacy to do the same.
“There are many different kinds of people, and some of the benefits of Facebook are worth the loss of privacy,” Wozniak told TMZ, which had interviewed him as he passed through an airport in Washington DC. “But to many like myself, my recommendation is – to most people – you should figure out a way to get off Facebook.”
