iPhone leaks personal data


[link to this post]
 
iPhone shock horror !!!

Many people do not seem to realise that if you have an iPhone on contract, EVERY TIME you make a phone call, send a text, access the internet etc, data is sent to Apple which gives them your credit card or bank account details or possibly, horror of horrors, your personal address!!!

AND YOU CANNOT BLOCK THIS DATA!!!

Woe is us, the end of the world is nigh...

Does it send the location data to determine whether it's for your left or right leg?

And if so, is it encrypted for security?

I believe security relies on the NSAthleticSupport class, using the Box Protocol.

Why/How on earth would your credit card or bank account details be stored within your phone?

I didn't say they were.

I said: "...data is sent to Apple which gives them..."

Which it is.

Is that data unencrypted and accessible to third parties? If not I see no cause for concern.

OK, then where does it get it from? If it's from your personal data held for billing purposes with your mobile service provider, then isn't that a breach of DPA?
