You never know what might be stealing your data but most iPhone Apps are. These apps are definitely transferring and storing your data and in the most breachful way.

Tech Crunch reports that certain popular iPhone applications are failing on two counts.

Many companies such as Air Canada, Expedia, Hollister and Hotels.com record your screen while using them and they often don’t even ask for your permission.

Moreover, others have confirmed to ‘TechCrunch’ that Air Canada is seeking customer information. According to reports, user information has entered in and collected on in Air Canada.

Majority of the companies today said that when they seek customer information, they try to improve your experience. However, even if they do say that their intentions are pure, they should be disclosing what they are trying to do. They might say its for your own safety but it is better that YOU protect your data.

In the midst of it all…

iPhone apps are taking your data away and they include the following:

  • Air Canada
  • Appsee
  • Glassbox (In coordination with Air Canada)
  • Hollister
  • Expedia

Key point to remember here is:

Whenever you think there is a problem, remember these key points:

  1. Read the conditions closely.
  2. Make sure you read it as you would read a doctor’s prescription.
  3. Read this information closely before they agree to the terms and conditions: Make sure you are careful before hitting agree.

Without a proper agreement and without reading carefully, you will definitely have to read the agreement and sign it before you sign away your data privacy. (This is the security breach you must take care of).

You also have to make sure that you sign it before it breaches in your privacy.

Key point to remember here is that you also have to make sure that you research before you download an application. Make sure whichever app you download, you research on it first and then get it.

Moreover, if the app has a reliable operation and reputation, make sure you get it.

Very Interesting Security Insight

Essentially, your data is being shared all the time and it is a scary thought.

What you need to do and ensure is that you read the terms and conditions before you sign into an app. And see if you disagree, you can get into an app properly and read its terms and conditions properly before you sign into a reliable app all over again.
