Your smartphone is spying on you.
Smartphone flashlight Apps, nearly everyone has them, right? They’re convenient and quick to get to at a moments notice, but did you know that your simple flashlight app is spying on you?
Over half a BILLION smartphones are affected by ‘flashlight’ apps!!!
With all the cyber-crime and identity theft going on, (not to mention spying) You should really take into consideration what you’re about to learn.
Gary Miliefsky, founder of SnoopWall.com, has recently conducted research on the implications of downloading common smartphone flashlight apps. What he found is disturbing.
According to his research, the TOP 10 flashlight apps are all malware that is sending your most vital information for criminal activity.
These apps are literally spying and stealing information such as your name, address, credit cards, bank accounts, your location, family pictures and videos, as well as all your friends and contact information.
So let’s just uninstall our flashlight apps right? …Wrong!
Gary Miliesfky also found that the majority of these malware flashlight apps also install Trojan viruses on your smartphone so just uninstalling the app leaves the Trojan virus running on your phone waiting for you to conduct important actions such as mobile banking.

If you’re worried about your vital information being at risk, here are some tips from Gary Miliefsky.
- Get a real flashlight from your local hardware store!
- Don’t just uninstall your app, back up your contacts and important pictures and get a factory reset. This helps alleviate the headache of dealing with a Trojan virus on your smartphone.
- If you absolutely need a flashlight app, look for the apps that are under 100kb. The ones that are usually malware have large file sizes from 1.2Mb – 5Mb.
