Facetime Glitch Could Allow Users To Eavesdrop On Other People

Facetime Glitch Could Allow Users To Eavesdrop On Other People 

If you have an iPhone, iPad or Mac, this warning is for you.  According to ABC News, this newly discovered bug means that someone could be using Facetime to spy on you.  The major glitch, uncovered overnight, let's a Facetime caller immediately hear the audio from your phone before you've accepted or rejected a Facetime request.

This glitch essentially turns your phone into a hot mic, letting callers eavesdrop on you.  It even let's them access your camera without your knowledge.

So what does Apple have to say about this potentially harmful glitch?  In a statement, Apple says:

We're aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week.

In the meantime, Apple has temporarily disabled their much-hyped Group Facetime feature.  So how can you keep yourself safe from this glitch?  You'll have to go without using Facetime for a few days.  Here's how to disable it...

  1. Open up your Settings
  2. Got to Facetime
  3. Turn it to off
