Here’s Why You Absolutely Need To Uninstall Your Phone’s Flashlight App

15 posts in this topic

According to Cybersecurity expert Gary Miliefskynt “the top 10 flashlight apps are all malware; they’re malicious, they’re spying, they’re snooping and they’re stealing.”

The most alarming fact is “500,000,000 people are infected and they do not know it.”

This information is a real eye-opener

To be honest, a phone is not a flashlight.. But, if "they" want to spy on where and when I use mine they can do so with the greatest of pleasure.

The cases I can remember: 

Neighbour's cat stuck in storm water drain.. Drunk fool next to the motorway under his car...Some dusty corner under a cupboard in my wood workshop, looking for a tool-bit I dropped. :biggrin:

I'll even bet that all of the other apps work the same way. Especially
all those free apps, because nothing is ever really free!

These phones are snooping and tracking even with out a little light . Knowing this, is way I don't have a cell phone .

I think you can still download software to track a phone number . It was/is a great tool to keep track of kids and things like that . I remember that you could use any phone number and it would find it using the GPS if it was turned on .

LOL, using your flashlight app to find your weed in the dark, then wonder why the cops know about it.

:chuckle: I'm so glad I didn't install that into my tablet. I almost did and they're probably just as vulnerable as the phone apps.

Yeah, I know... Why? Because I was trying them out in the beginning, and when
I figured which one I like, I just never deleted the others. Going to do that right now
though! Lol.
