Do YOU Know What Your Cell Phone’s Flashlight App Is Doing Behind Your Back?

What Finger News

Do you have a flashlight app on your phone? Many if not most people have downloaded a flashlight app onto their cell phone. These apps that turn your phone into a bright flashlight are just so handy!

But did you know many of the top rated cell phone flashlight apps contain malicious malware? Odds are pretty good your simple flashlight app may be spying on you and sending information to interested parties in places like: China, India, and Russia for criminal purposes, and/or advertising agencies.

Turning on your flashlight may well be sending your phones contact list information to these people, along with other things like your location by using your phones geolocation settings, your bank data etc. Snopes.com says this is partially true – as many apps want access to a lot of info – but ask yourself, why does a simple flashlight need access to anything other than the flash and web cam?

I myself use very few apps on my phone, hardly any on Facebook, and as few as possible on my computer – and I rarely allow apps to interact with one another anywhere. Why? – because the more apps you use, and the more you allow apps to interact, the higher your security risks are.
