Your Android Phone is Secretly Recording Everything Using CarrierIQ
|Wednesday, 30 November 2011|
Did you know that your Android Phone is secretly recording EVERYTHING you do? Inside of every Android phone is something called CarrierIQ which is software that logs every button, text message, email, google search that is happening on your phone. The real scary part that even secure web requests and user names and passwords are being captured in clear text and sent unsecurely via CarrierIQ. It doesn't appear (yet) that there is no way to opt-out of this, however, we expect that after this gets more media attention, this will have to change.
According to Carrier IQ:
"Our software is designed to help mobile network providers diagnose critical issues that lead to problems such as dropped calls and battery drain,"
