Update Your AccuWeather App to Stop Sharing Your Location Data
AccuWeather was recently found to be collecting location data belonging to users of its iOS app, whether they had opted into sharing it or not. The
Security researcher Will Strafach discovered the app was collecting data concerning users' Wi-Fi network and Bluetooth status, even when users opted out of sharing location data. AccuWeather released a statement yesterday denying intentional collection of user data, and claiming that code from Reveal Mobile, a company that uses location data in marketing campaigns, is responsible for the accidental data collection.
While you're updating your iOS apps, you should take the time to look at your location settings in your phone to make sure you're not sharing your whereabouts with apps that you'd prefer didn't have access to said information.
