Become a spy and use your mobile phone to reveal the identities of other spies on your target list. To identify a spy, covertly snap a photo of them, using their conference badge as identification. Show your target the photo – they must reveal their secret ID# to you. Successfully hack the target and gain points by texting their secret ID#. Help fellow spies by concealing them if they’ve been hacked, to earn extra points.
