Facebook new app update let them record sound & video from your phone, at any time, without your consent
Posted by MrMaybeNot
For me this is where they stepped over the line. Facebook came out with an app update today on Android and when I looked at the new permissions this version request over the previous ones, I noticed that by updating, you consent to let Facebook use your microphone and record with your camera anytime, without your confirmation. I know I won’t be updating, but how many millions will?
Picture from my Android TV box: (same thing was asked on my phone)
Seems that ‘they’ really can access anything, anywhere nowadays. I will be deleting the FB app from my (thankfully old, non-smart) mobile phone; though I suppose there’s a chance they’ve already got me to agree to such terms in the last update, which I applied to the phone when I bought it second-hand, back in November 2012.
NoScript gives you the option to allow any scripts on a webpage to load, before it just automatically does. Ghostery is brilliant in my opinion as it lists all 3rd party tracking cookies and blocks them on webpages, and BOY is FB blocked A LOT! Collusion will show you how all your websites that have been visited are sharing your data.
I also disallow all cookies in FF options, only allow the ones I deem necessary in my exceptions list, like banking.
It’s become ridiculous how much BS one has to do nowadays just to browse safely. Anyway, enough of my rambling, thanks for your post OP it is much appreciated. The next thing we will have to worry about is the SMART TV BS and how that is going to affect us…..
