Personal Data Safe

Never Download This One App If You Want to Keep Your Personal Data Safe

You might not know this, but the one app you should never download if you are an iPhone user is Facebook. Before Facebook starts, it requests permission to access your contacts, camera, internal storage, location, text messages, and call logs. The sad part is if you grant the app permissions, it will track your activities on the internet and other apps. As an Apple security expert, I hate to say it, but that is how you will lose your valuable information.

How Can You Protect Yourself?

If you must use Facebook, I strongly suggest accessing the it through your browser. There, the app will not request permissions, Improving your security and privacy.
