iPhones Secretly Send All Your Call Records To Apple
Privacy problems have been on the agenda are the major problems. More and more users want to ensure that their data is protected and that are not shared.
The tech giant Apple has always ensured that the safety of its users was in the first place, but it was now discovered that the tech giant Apple collects all your call records which are being sent to iCloud, and stored for several months.
Although there is not much information about how the tech giant Apple is sending the call data of its users to iCloud, but it is certain that they are being stored. Who has the iCloud enabled Drive is subject to this situation that no one knew.
Who discovered that Apple is sending or storing this data in iCloud, it was a Russian company known as Elcomsoft, who has now made an application available that allows users to unload the call records, showing that these are accessible to users.
This is considered as a major problem, as this collection is not declared in any document of Apple and is not communicated to users who think that these data never leaves your devices. What has known now that this synchronization is going on from the iOS 8.2, which is already launched in March 2015.

Apple already went public recognize that actually makes this collection of calls from users, but also explained why it does. According to the company’s resources with this information that allows call records are shared by different devices.
In addition, the company noted that users can easily disable this collection of information by simply to switch off iCloud on your devices. Apple also noted that those who wish to maintain synchronization should choose strong passwords and to use two-factor authentication.
The issue, far beyond the fact that Apple collect information without explicit leaves, is how it can be accessed. Recent cases have proven to be simple to access iCloud user accounts, only with the use of some social engineering, which shows the ease with which one can access the data.
However, Apple has updated their pages to indicate that it collects this information, but this does not absolve the state from having to omit important information about the users’ data and what actually they with them.
