Background refresh is risky: Most iOS apps are stealing user data
By Daniel Camilo 2019-05-30 269 0
While it's no surprise that apps use trackers and share user data, the frequency with which background refreshes are used to send data is surprising.
In a week-long test, a total of 5,400 trackers were found, most of which were in the application. Disconnect revealed that these trackers could send 1.5GB of data in a total of one month.
But not all data collection is malicious, some will be anonymous and deleted after a certain time, but some trackers will collect specific user data, but do not provide clear retention time and sharing objects.
Users who do not want to be collected can turn off the automatic refresh function of the background application, or use some VPN software to limit the automatic refresh behavior of the APP in the background.
