Apple Secretly Stores Your iPhone Call History - Report
« on: November 18, 2016, 12:42:38 AM »

Russian security firm Elcomsoft claims that Apple secretly logs information on pretty much every single call that you make with your iPhone without offering any option to disable this.
It turns out that users who have iCloud enabled on their devices get their call history automatically synced to the cloud and there’s no way to stop this unless they disable the cloud synchronization completely.

According to the security firm, the log that Apple automatically collects includes call history, phone numbers, dates, call duration, missed calls, FaceTime calls, and information collected from other applications that can also initiate calls over the Internet, including here WhatsApp, Skype, or Facebook.

Apple stores this information for a total of 4 months, and while everything is encrypted, the company could become an easy target for governments seeking access to user data, with the firm also raising doubts over possible surveillance that could be performed.
