If you own an Apple device, you should immediately turn OFF FaceTime app for a few days.
A jaw-dropping unpatched privacy bug has been uncovered in Apple’s popular video and audio call app FaceTime that could let someone hear or see you before you even pick up your call.
The bug is going viral on Twitter and other social media platforms with multiple users complaining of this privacy issue that can turn any iPhone into an eavesdropping device without the user’s knowledge.
The Hacker News has tested the bug on iPhone X running the latest iOS 12.1.2 and can independently confirm that it works, as flagged by 9to5Mac on Monday. We were also able to replicate the bug by making a FaceTime call to a MacBook running macOS Mojave.
