If you put your Google Android phone into airplane mode, or disconnect it from a mobile network, it’s still logging your every move. An investigation by Tucker Carlson Tonight, watchable below, shows exactly how this works.

Although the phones are unable to send your information to Google while they are disconnected from a data network, they still collect that information. Once they connect to a network, they instantly transmit the data to Google.
