The director of “Snowden” has a public service announcement about using your phones — and it’s not a pretty picture.

The P.S.A. titled “Turn off your phones,” accompanies the upcoming movie based on the real life story of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. The director of the biopic, Oliver Stone, warns that by using one’s phones it could ruin your life. (RELATED: The Newest ‘Snowden’ Trailer Is Chilling [VIDEO])


Stone starts out by praising the handheld devices that allow users to watch cat videos and order Chinese food at the same time. (RELATED: Watch The Official Trailer For ‘Snowden’ [VIDEO])

Then things turn dark as the director warns that “your every move” is being watched.

“But that’s not all it does,” Stone said. “It allows certain parties to track your every move, every time you make a call, send a text.”

“We are giving them access,” he added. “The information you’ve put out into the world voluntarily is enough to burn your life to the ground.”

“Snowden” stares Joseph Gordon-Levitt and comes out September 16th.
