It is then labeled as a hacking application and so everyone must stop using it as much as possible so as to prevent further harm and damage. The application in fact, without your knowledge, gets and uploads your contacts’ details on their company server as what was said by an expert.

The creator of the application explained that it is true that they do such thing, but not for any fraudulent reason but to develop a better feature later on.

It was later on claimed that this application was banned permanently in America after the government received a lot of fraudulent report about it. If this application is really having this kind of getting unauthorized information, then it might be telling us something about its purpose and goals.
