Worried about the government spying on you? Never fear, former CIA employee/former contractor for the U.S. government, Edward Snowden, is here to help.

VICE recently got together with the computer professional — who is best known for leaking classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013 without prior authorization — so that he could teach us all how to prevent our cellphones from being compromised. Snowden sat down with VICE founder Shane Smith, in turn highlighting how to make a mobile phone “go black” by removing the cameras and microphones.

So whether or not you’re one of those paranoid individuals who thinks the government is watching your every move, you should definitely check out Snowden’s informative tutorial above.

Not NYC, not LA.
