Film student lets his phone get stolen intentionally and films a documentary with it while the thief uses it

Film student, Anthony van der Meer, had one phone stolen and was wrecked.  It wasn't the cost of the phone that messed with him, but the idea that someone out there had access to his videos, photos and contacts.

Some time later, van der Meer decided to set up another theft of another phone.  This time, he had installed some serious security software, called Cerberus, so that he could record video and audio any time the phone had access to the internet.  It was also hidden and name changed so that the thief didn't know it was on there.

From thins incredible footage, van der Meer created a documentary, called Find my Phone.  The video has gained, nearly, six million views on YouTube at the time of this article's writing.

The documentary follows the thief through the streets of Amsterdam to Berlin and France.

“After my phone got stolen, I quickly realized just how much of my personal information and data the thief had instantly obtained,” van der Meer writes in the video description. “However, to what extent is it possible to truly get to know someone by going through the content of their phone?”
