is a software company which has it's HIDDEN data recovery software  installed on millions of Android, BlackBerry and Nokia phones. Most mobile phone carriers prevent users who actually find the software from controlling what information is being recorded by Carrie IQ and then sent to company headquarters.  Carrier IQ's software is known as a“ROOTKIT” a security term which is installed at a low-level on a device, without a user’s permission.    All in order to secretly intercept the mobile phones data.   

When confronted about this stated that the company's software is for “gathering information off the handset to understand the mobile-user experience, where phone calls are dropped, where signal quality is poor, why applications crash and battery life. Adding further, we’re counting things. How many texts sent and how many failed.  When asked if Carrier IQ had the ability to read personal data from the mobile devices Carrier IQ's response is  "YES" it absolutely could read the mobile devices personal data if it wanted.

Back in 2005, the Sony corporation came under fire for installing a 'ROOTKIT' on music CDs.  “The Sony code modifies Windows so you can’t tell it’s there, a process called ‘cloaking’ in the hacker world. It acts as spyware, surreptitiously sending information about you to Sony. And it can’t be removed; trying to get rid of it damages Windows.”

So NOW we have another example of yet another CORPORATION with it's nose in our personal business.
Mind you is only doing this for our best interests.  Obviously Carrier IQ has only the best intentions when it secretly and without customer consent put it's 'ROOTKIT' software on OUR mobile devices.

So, if you are using an Android, BlackBerry and Nokia mobile device, cell phone, laptop, computer, tablet, please know that...

has it's 'ROOTKIT' software installed on your device and at any time, if it felt like it, could read... 

ALL of your personal data:

Everything, every Email, every Text message, every, Photo, every Contact, every Phone number you ever dialed, every Website you ever visited...
