Facebook App Reads Your Texts!

5 years ago

If you have the Facebook app downloaded onto your smartphone, you may find that Facebook has been accessing and reading your SMS text messages. Don`t believe me? At first it was just a rumor, but Facebook has responded and their answer is less than pleasing. To sum it up, they <strong>DO NOT</strong> read your texts, but they have the ability to do it.

I don`t really trust that Facebook has not been reading our texts. It is stated clearly on the permissions to <strong>"allow application to read SMS messages stored on your device or SIM card."

ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME?!</STRONG> After I heard about the initial rumor, I deleted the app off right away. And then I got a text message from Facebook asking for permission to use my mobile number. First of all, I never gave them my mobile number. And secondly, they shouldn`t be texting me after I delete the app off my iPhone.

Facebook has been getting kind of ridiculous as of late with their privacy settings, or lack there of really. I truly dislike Mark Zuckerberg for invading my privacy. I don`t use my Facebook often, but I cannot bring myself to deactivate it because that is how I connect with old friends from middle school or high school who have gone to different colleges.

<strong>What do you think about Facebook having permission to read your texts and picture messages?
Do you like or hate Facebook?</strong>
