APPLE TAKES IMMEDIATE “APPLICATION” ACTION SECRETLY
If these applications fail to respond to the US company request, Apple will block it at the Store, but technical experts have questioned the reason for the delay, because the company did not move until after the news caused a major uproar.
Two technology news websites reported on Thursday that some iPhone applications were “spying on” them.
“Techcrunch” and theappanalyst, explained that many applications went far in the field of information gathering, and it came to the extent of monitoring all the activities that appear on the phone screen, without informing users.
Both applications say they use an analytical program from Glassbox, which shows exactly what users do on their monitor, which means the possibility of monitoring sensitive information such as a user’s credit card number.
A video showed how the credit card information and password of a user are monitored when he enters them on his phone while running one of these applications, and that they can only “spy” when opened by the user.
A news report last year spoke of some applications running on Android phones, and also the ability to record what is happening on the user screen.
