Security Glitch makes iPhone users info accessable to strangers.

For any of you who are looking to sell their old iPhones, iPads, or iPod touches here`s a warning for you. Your personal data may still be accessible to the person you sell it to even though you think you wiped it all. The glitch comes from 2 apps called Grindr (a gay hook up app) and Blendr (the straight version of it) Should the person who you sell your iPhone to should also Download the same app they`ll be automatically logged in to you account. These 2 apps use your iPhone/iPad/iPod touche`s UDID number to automatically log you in. Apple and the 2 apps` creator are looking for ways to stop the security leak.

While I myself do not use these hook up apps or sites I know there are people out there who do. So if you`ve used these apps before it`s best not to sell your phone to anyone until Apple and the owners have found a way to keep this from happening.
