While most spy movies and stories feature male spies, some of the best secret agents you’ll ever find are women. This story is from a colleague of mine who is by far one of the top agents I’ve ever met.
So the story starts with her going undercover as a teacher at an elite private school in Europe. One of the students was the daughter of a violent dictator. We needed to catch him while he was visiting his daughter and within the jurisdiction of the European Union.
However, we also needed to confirm his identity. His daughter was enrolled under a fake name. He was also using his own set of fake papers while in the country. If we could get audio or video of him discussing anything related to his home country though, we’d have enough evidence to make an initial arrest.
The undercover agent came up with a great plan. She would plant her iPhone XR in her classroom’s “confiscated” box. Phones were not allowed in class and the box was usually full of phones the teacher had confiscated from students. An extra phone wouldn’t draw any attention.
Once planted, the phone could be set to record the audio of the room. We weren’t sure how long we would need the phone to record for though. To avoid losing battery, we used the case’s support for wireless charging. We hid a wireless charger in the box, just below the phone.
To make sure the phone didn’t draw any attention though, we also decided to use the AGATE clear glitter sparkle case. This phone case was popular with the teen girls in the school and came with embedded fashion glitter sparkle crystals. There were 3 colors to choose from - pink, red, and purple - which would all work perfectly. We went with pink.
With the phone planted, the “teacher” / undercover agent asked the target to wait in her classroom while she went to get his daughter. He was traveling with two bodyguards and a secretary as well. Once left alone in the room, they started to discuss issues that clearly confirmed his role as a dictator. The phone picked up the whole conversation!
Once we had what we needed, our agents rushed in. There was quite the struggle while the target and his bodyguards tried to get away. In the scuffle, the box where the phone had been placed was knocked to the floor.
Thankfully, the phone and its audio evidence was fine. The AGATE case comes with great enhanced shock absorbing protection. There is a raised bezel for extra screen protection as well and a nice scratch resistant clear back. The flexible transparent TPU material of the case is also quite strong.
The phone was quickly retrieved. The undercover agent used the Face ID unlock compatible feature to unlock the phone and access the audio. With all buttons and ports easily accessible, it wasn’t hard to quickly transfer the data to a second agent’s laptop. Uploaded to headquarters, we had what we needed to detain the target indefinitely.
