Isn't it common knowledge that the NSA https://www.nsa.gov
has the ability to hack into most smart phones, laptops, etc., to access the audio and video features to spy on you even when you think you're protected.
In a congressional hearing a couple years ago, the head of the agency was specifically asked if the NSA had the capability to do just that. The answer he gave and the hearing commission accepted without follow up was "NSA doesn't do that because it's illegal".
Never said if they had the capability to do it.
If NSA can do it, so can Russia, China and a bunch other countries.
