CELLPHONE users who attempt to install the Facebook Messenger app are asked to agree to terms of service that allow the social networking giant to use the microphone on their device to record audio at any time without their permission.
As the screenshot above illustrates (click for enlargement), users are made to accept an agreement that allows Facebook to “record audio with the microphone … at any time without your confirmation.” The TOS also authorizes Facebook to take videos and pictures using the phone’s camera at any time without permission, as well as directly calling numbers, again without permission, that could incur charges. But wait, there’s more! Facebook can also “read your phone’s call log” and “read data about contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you’ve called, emailed or communicated in other ways with specific individuals.”
Although most apps on Android and Apple devices include similar terms to those pictured above, this is easily the most privacy-busting set of mandates we’ve seen so far. Since the vast majority of people will agree to these terms without even reading them, cellphone users are agreeing to let Facebook monitor them 24/7, green lighting the kind of open ended wiretap that would make even the NSA jealous. Other app companies are also requiring you to allow them to approximate your location, send SMS messages from your phone that cost you money, read your contacts, read your phone status and identity, get “full network access” to your communications (in other words listen to your phone calls), modify or delete the contents of your USB storage, and disable your screen lock (the 4 digit code that password-protects your phone).
As we have previously highlighted, embedded microphones in everything from Xbox Kinect consoles to high-tech street lights that can record private conversations in real time represent the final nail in the coffin of privacy as the ‘Internet of things’ becomes a part of our daily lives.
Also it is interesting to note that when you open a new Facebook account nowadays- you are requested to supply your personal cell number to which your Facebook confirmation “code” are sent to. In the olden days you had a choice to supply your private cell number- but these days it suddenly is “mandatory” if you want to use their social services. Giving up your privacy just to make use of a private company’s services- does that not sound a bit strange? This all comes to show that Zuckerberg and his merry gang of FBI prowlers want access to your private messages, location and movements through your phone. A good word of advice: DO NOT DOWNLOAD QUESTIONABLE APPS SUCH AS MESSENGER– no matter WHAT it tells you or how many times it prompts you eg tellng you “your friend awaits your reply “ on Messenger. Your OWN security is at risk as anybody can hack into the system , locate you- and do you or your family some harm.
