There is no possible way to guarantee to you that they *can't*.

In my other post, I detailed some of the many reasons why they *won't*, even if they could.

If that's not enough to assuage your concerns, then by all means choose your own solution, whether that's electrical tape, or becoming a luddite.  Whichever solution works best for you, it's yours to choose.
