Facebook admits reading text messages of app users
Did as part of a trial to launch its own messaging service
Some apps even allow companies to intercept phone calls
INTERNET giant Facebook is accessing smartphone users' personal text messages, an investigation has revealed.
Facebook admitted reading text messages belonging to smartphone users who downloaded the social-networking app and said that it was accessing the data as part of a trial to launch its own messaging service, The (London) Sunday Times reported.
Other well-known companies accessing smartphone users' personal data - such as text messages - include photo-sharing site Flickr, dating site Badoo and Yahoo Messenger, the paper said.
It claimed that some apps even allow companies to intercept phone calls - while others, such as YouTube, are capable of remotely accessing and operating users' smartphone cameras to take photographs or videos at any time.
Security app My Remote Lock and the app Tennis Juggling Game were among smaller companies' apps that may intercept users' calls, the paper said.
Emma Draper, of the Privacy International campaign group, said, "Your personal information is a precious commodity, and companies will go to great lengths to get their hands on as much of it as possible."
More than 400,000 apps can be downloaded to Android phones, and more than 500,000 are available for iPhones - with all apps downloaded from Apple's App Store covered by the same terms and conditions policy.
According to a YouGov poll for the newspaper, 70 per cent of smartphone users rarely or never read the terms and conditions policy when they download an app.
Listening to the good deeds review I though that it would be a good idea that you and Korey should make your own commentary track to old movies, maybe do that as a monthly thing and maybe we could vote on what movie you should guys watch. Similar to what Mr. Plinkett did with the re-release of the Phantom Menace, you just record your voices with zero original audio from the movies and there should not be any legal problems.
I know that I would love to listen to you guys taking about the Goonies during the whole film and what that movie meant to you guys and all. Thanks
Co-Host you are the man that gives this site it's edge! You are the only real man on this site and you're a robot! What does that tell you! It tells you that instead of having to record then listening then delete to Kory speaking on LTD I know have to do that same for Billy! You are the best and yet you only get 1/3 of one show now! You are the most undervalued asses Spill.com has. So here is my suggestion to you! Make your own website, say Spill3000.com, and just have you on there and maybe one of the others every now and then but they should pay you!
