Given the recent flurry of hacking scandals over the last few years, it’s no surprise that consumers are now more concerned with their privacy than ever. Predictably, this has given rise to a number of startups looking to calm/capitalise on that fear, such as a clothing range designed to prevent phones from being hacked. For users that are unnerved by the thought of satellites — such as ones used by Google Maps — taking photographs of their house or themselves, now a new satellite-tracking app may provide some comfort. Created by Orbit Logiv Inc., an organization specializing in supplying software to the aerospace and intelligence communities, SpyMeSat is a mobile app which notifies users when a satellite is flying above their heads and potentially taking their picture.
