An App you Don't Want to Tap!

 
 

Facebook’s new messaging system is evil!! 

The social media giant took creeping to a new level when they made users download the new messenger. When you pressed AGREE, you gave Facebook permission to do the following.

  • Allows the app to call phone numbers without your intervention. This may result in unexpected charges or calls. Malicious apps may cost you money by making calls without your confirmation.

  • Allows the app to send SMS messages. This may result in unexpected charges. Malicious apps may cost you money by sending messages without your confirmation.

  • Allows the app to record audio with microphone. This permission allows the app to record audio at any time without your confirmation.

  • Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.

  • Allows the app to read personal profile information stored on your device, such as your name and contact information. This means the app can identify you and may send your profile information to others.



That’s right baby, Facebook – which is a free service – may hike up your phone bill. But what’s worse is that Facebook is spying on you. Has the NSA employed the social network to spy on it’s users?? We don’t know, we’ll have to wait and see.
