New iPhone Bug Lets You Listen In On Someone Before They Answer

 

If Privacy matters to you, disable your iPhone’s facetime feature, at least for now.

According to Fox 8, A newly discovered bug in FaceTime allows people to listen to the audio of a person they are calling before the person accepts or rejects the call.

For those that  are not familiar with Apple’s iPhone, FaceTime is a video chat app developed by Apple and supported on iOS devices and Mac computers. It is believed the bug impacts any device running iOS 12.1 or later.

The bug can be reproduced by starting a FaceTime call, swiping up from the bottom and clicking “Add person” and adding your own phone number to the conversation. FaceTime then allows you to hear audio from the other person’s device even if they have not accepted the call.

Andy Baio noted the issue calling it a “really bad bug” and shared his experience via twitter.

Baio also shared the steps involved in the process:

1. Start a FaceTime video call.
2. While it’s still ringing, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and click “Add Person.”
3. Add your own phone number to the call.

You’ll now be able to hear the microphone from the other device, even if the owner is nowhere nearby.

The Blue Checkmark Brigade have come out in full force just like we knew that they would. After all, they can’t stand the idea of not having an iron grip on all your information. They don’t want Conservatives to have anything that prevents the big tech oligarchs from spying, censoring, and banning anything that isn’t “politically correct” or is “out of context” as Facebook loves to say as an excuse for suppression.

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
