Have you ever thought about how much information your phone stores about you? Your name, names of relatives and friends and their contacts, photos of yours and your close people. Not to mention access to social networks, e-mail and credit cards. All at the distance of pressing a couple of keys.
One girl especially realized this after she found a lost iPhone and decided to see what she could learn about its owner. She just wanted to figure out how to get the phone back, but what she found out terrified her.
“I asked Siri my name. And she told. Cool. I asked Siri whom I most often call. And she issued the last calls. Cool.
“I wanted to call the most recent people in the calls, but they called me. I answered, and the girl returned for the phone. Hooray. All is well".
“But I realized that with the help of Siri I could find out her name, where she lives, where her car is parked. It was so easy. And all this from a locked phone. I could find out the way to her car and her house. It scared the hell out of me. ”
“If it was just me, but it’s scary to know that anyone can find out this information about me if I just forget my phone somewhere for 5 minutes.”
“I told the girl she was shocked. Then I changed her settings to prevent this from happening again. ”
“Click“ Settings ”,“ Password and ID ”, and turn off Siri in the column“ Allow access when blocking ”,“ Review calls ”.
