iOS and Android apps accessing photos


iOS and Android apps accessing photos
Even apps are taking to creeping now.
The issue of privacy has reared its ugly head again. The latest culprits are iOS and Android devices, which are possibly exposing photos. iOS third-party apps are asking permission to access users’ locations, but the side effect is that they could also expose your photos. Android is also potentially exposing photos, but is not asking permission of any sort at the same time. This is as a result of a design flaw from the OS's reliance on microSD cards. Android was designed to allow users to access their photos from a removable memory card, but this is less of an issue when phones are getting more in-built memory.

Both Google and Apple are aware of these issues and are working to resolve these flaws. It has been a bad start to 2012 for both when it comes to privacy and the protection of users’ data and personal information.
