Tom Hardy doesn't hang onto the same phone account for long and with good reason.
On Wednesday, Evening Standard shared details from the actor who said that he and his wife, Charlotte Riley, get "hacked all the time." He also uses "private offline servers" so hackers won't get into his family albums or find out about secret movie scripts.
"People go on to messengers and try to set up accounts with profiles, or try to get into the phone itself, or they get hold of the number and they start fishing about, and my family as well, anyone I'm related to," Hardy said. "You just have to bin and burn the phone and start again, we have to go through burners."
This seems like a constant process for the actor who continues to take the 'burner' way out.
"We're burning numbers left, right and center," he said. "Everything just gets riddled- it's my mum, dad, everyone. I'll burn numbers and then I'll have private offline servers for my email accounts. It's quite painful when you think about, we're quite normal people in that aspect."
When it comes to his family, Hardy does what he can to make sure they're fully protected.
"My mum and dad don't need to have their photos of stuff gone through or any of their private messages just because people want to find or piece together something maybe prurient or salacious, and even worse take money from people or move things around," he said.
The actor then pointed out how he knows about the iCloud celebrity hack two years ago when a number of Hollywood stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Kirsten Dunst had private images leaked.
"I don't touch iCloud," Hardy said. "I've been advised not to by security specialists and analysts."
