    given the small number of users, I wonder if the NSA even monitors WebOs activity
    don't know of course, but I suspect they concentrate on more widely used operating systems

    You mean like what? Trying to subpoena Palm Profiles unrelated to any given investigation?

    AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK, $webOS$ $is$ $considered$ $to$ $be$ $quite$ $low$ $on$ $the$ $physical$ $device$ $security$ $scale$. $And$ $i$ $don$'$t$ $know$ $if$ $HP$ $stores$ $actual$ $Palm$ $Profile$ $passwords$ $or$ $only$ $hashes$.

    Highly doubtful the NSA is monitoring webOS as a platform; it's the services like Facebook, Twitter, and Google's services like Gmail that the NSA purports to monitor, so it would mean that indirectly your data is available to the NSA if you're using them from your webOS device.

    Of course, the NSA has been "friendly" with AT&T (Room 641, anyone), Verizon, and other carriers and Internet Service Providers for a while, so there's not a whole lot anyone can do to avoid it at this point.

    Under FISA, you simply won't know because it's illegal under Federal law for a provider to admit that a FISA request has been made.

    WebOS already has Facebook, Yahoo, Hotmail, Skype, and Gmail seamlessly intergrated together.

    You can try Google to see what NSA means, but lets give a hint: Nothing is Secure in America?

    i hope Martin left out the ironic tags intentionally, cause this prism gate is also cooking up in old europe.

    but what about a new webOS marketing strategy:

    webOS THE terrorist OS.

    but as has been pointed out, the NSA trolls more from social forums, though they do have access to devices
    still there are marketing advantages to having such a small market share
    anyone know of WebOs viruses???

    nope, zip
    we're too small to bother wasting time to target (from a bad guy's perspective) when Android is a much juicier target

    zOMG!

    Old news. It's AT&T, Verizon, Google, Facebook, etc...

    You know who else is monitoring you? Us.

    Don't even think of trying to scam yourself a free/low cost device on here again. We'll be watching you

    well i wasn't trying to get a free webos device and you can gladly watch me im not going to cause any harm also Remy if you don't mind me asking what is your opinion on hp eventually shutting down the servers for webos?

    The servers? Since they have re-purposed them for use as an enterprise-grade mobile backup and cloud sync system (essentially, reselling Synergy separately from webOS), i doubt they'd drop webOS compatibility... "Gotta catch them all", with Android, iOS, WP, BB10, and so webOS fills out the list nicely, even if no new devices have been produced since the "Apothecalypse"...

    That already happened. For 6 years in a row now, my country The Netherlands, has been #1 on the list of most phone snooping activity by the Dutch version of the FBI. But we aren't considered a land of criminals so... It's really that worse. There's more phone snooping here every year than in the USA or any other country.

    So yeah, that part has already happened and it won't come as a suprise to me if more European countries are snooping/eaves dropping on people.

    *ROFL*

    Time to take off the /tinfoilhat

    Intelligence agencies are much more monitoring data and datastreams then OSs. Why get into the trouble of building trojans and rootkit for different OSs, when you can just monitor the traffic from and to the devices and comfortly read all the data provided by the owners in mails, phonecalls, social media et. al. ??

    Be sure, it's NOT the choice of the OS that makes you transparent.
    War doesn't prove who's right, only who's left...
