Privacy trend: Signal-blocking phone bags

The backlash against government spying is growing and companies are responding by creating goods and services that help protect privacy. Even when your phone is turned off, it's not really off. Rogues can still take control of your microphone, camera or information. Edward Snowden required that visitors put their mobile devices in his refrigerator as a shield against unwanted cellular signals, WiFi, and GPS snooping. Because it's inconvenient to carry a fridge around with you, Off Pocket is looking for Kickstarter funding for a signal-blocking bag that ensures that no one can access your phone and its records in those times you require absolute privacy.
