Sen. Charles Schumer has asked the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) of the United States to investigate reports, according to which applications for mobile systems from Apple and Google (Android and iOS) access private photos and contacts the user, publishing the Internet without the consent of the authors. The complaint was made ??by The New York Times.
Senator’s request comes after the maker of the iPhone have set their privacy policies last month under pressure from lawmakers. Schumer also cited a finding last month that some applications could carry the entire agenda of the apparatus, with names, phone numbers and e-mails to their own servers. The congressman said that this violates the terms of service platforms from Apple and Google.
