Will Airplane Mode Protect My Smartphone?
Thinking airplane mode will protect your privacy is a mistake. Airplane mode only prevents your phone from transmitting many signals–not receiving tracking signals. In airplane mode, your location history is still recorded by your phone and transmitted later when you take it out of airplane mode.

We’re privacy fanatics. That’s why we built the Invisabag™. We believe each individual should choose for themselves what information they want to share.
