John McAfee is famous for being brilliant, eccentric, an ex-employee of NASA and Lockheed, and the inventor of McAfee anti-virus. With the huge public interest in the snooping that is taking place by the NSA, America's intelligence service, McAfee has created a new invention. He calls it D-Central.
This is a device that works with Android and iOS phones, which should include the Samsung Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5s to make tracking the phone, accessing its information or identifying information being sent to it, impossible.
The device works by creating a miniature network with a range of about three blocks (a quarter of a mile) in a city environment, or about 400m in more rural areas.
The mini network is highly encrypted, so no one can peep into your phone. There's also a second mode that lets you securely share information with other D-Central users. As McAfee says, 'Since the networks are invisible to each other and in constant flux, there is simply no way to tell who is doing what, when or where.'
Due in around 6 months' time, the device is said to cost around $100 (£66), which should make it relatively affordable.
If you're worried about your information being taken off your device, McAfee has a website here, and his interview about D-Central is freely available on YouTube.
