Here’s How to Save Yourself from the Apple FaceTime Bug
Last night we all found out that there is a major bug in iPhone's FaceTime software, now we know how to protect ourselves from it.
Monday night the Internet was buzzing about an issue in the FaceTime app that allows whoever is calling you to listen to your end of the phone before you pick it up.
CNN describes it in more high tech terms: 'A newly discovered bug in Apple's FaceTime software lets Apple users listen in on the people they are calling, and even see through their front-facing camera, without them picking-up the call.'
That's all kinds of creepy, and even more creepy when you realize if your friends and family can pre-see and hear you, Apple can probably see and hear you way farther in advance then in just a few seconds.
So what can we do about it?
Well, CNN has an answer for that too, we must disable the Group FaceTiming app, but CNN is actually suggesting you just turn off FaceTime until it's fixed.
I generally FaceTime my nieces and nephews so I'm not too concerned but if you are, here's more info.
