Cloak and dagger: The app Clueful, which told iPhone users what data other programs were harvesting, has been pulled from the Apple store after just two months

Apple products are mining tools that siphon personal information and funnel it directly to Advertisers and Apple itself. they are perfect tools for spying. 
An app that told iPhone users whether their other apps were breaching data privacy has been removed from Apple’s store in mysterious circumstances.
Clueful would say if your other programmes were accessing your address book, tracking your GPS co-ordinates or farming information from social networking accounts.


Neither Apple nor the app’s developers, Romanian-based Bitdefender, have revealed why, after just two months, the program has been pulled.

The app was approved by Apple on May 22, but the company has now reversed its decision, it was reported by Security Week.
