In Find my Phone, Dutch filmmaker Anthony van der Meer purposely allows his phone to be stolen. Thanks to the software installed on it, he can see what happens to it and just how much information a criminal can gain from it.

After my phone got stolen, I quickly realized just how much of my personal information and data the thief had instantly obtained. So, I let another phone get stolen. This time my phone was pre-programmed with spyware so I could keep tabs on the thief in order to get to know him. However, to what extent is it possible to truly get to know someone by going through the content of their phone?
