John McAfee is the founder of the anti-virus software company McAfee Associates. He left the company in the 1990s and moved to Belize. In 2012, he became a “person of interest” in the murder of his neighbor Gregory Faull, who was shot in the back of the head. McAfee, who says he’s being framed for the murder, returned to the U.S. in 2013. McAfee, who now lives in Tennessee, agreed to an interview with ABC’s 20/20.
McAfee is currently CEO of MGT Capital Investments which is developing The Privacy Phone, “the world’s first smartphone featuring hard kill switches, empowering its users to take back control of their privacy.” The switches allow “physical disconnection [from] the battery, WiFi, Bluetooth and geolocation, the camera and the microphone, and more.” MGT is “issuing exclusive 5000 golden tickets for access to the initial release of the Privacy Phone developed by John McAfee. The first 100 customers will have the option of receiving a signed phone.” 20/20 airs Fridays at 10pm on ABC.
