Bitdefender, the global leader in computer security technology, is upgrading its groundbreaking app Clueful after painstaking research and overwhelming feedback revealed a keen public need to know how apps treat iPhone owners’data.
Clueful, launched in its first version in May, will not be available on Apple’s App Store while Bitdefender fine-tunes software to tell you which apps track your location, tap your address book, hit you with ads, track your, carelessly handle usernames and passwords or access your Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts.
“During our research for Clueful, we’ve had amazing feedback that has helped position us to create a dynamic product capable of keeping up with the rapid development of iOS apps and the means they could use to invade privacy,”said Bitdefender Chief Security Researcher Catalin Cosoi. “We also uncovered vast amounts of privacy-related information few, if any, iPhone owners are aware of. We are now using all that information to create an even more dynamic product.”
