Path Enhances Privacy And Addresses Security Concerns In Latest Update
Social network Path came under great scrutiny after it was discovered that the app would upload a user’s entire address book to Path’s servers. The worst part, for iOS users at least, was Path never let them know. After a public apology, Path worked diligently to remedy the issue and came up with a few enhancements to the way they handle user privacy. Today, Path has rolled out an update to both its Android and iOS apps reflecting the changes and assuring users that they take their privacy seriously (or at least now they do).
If you’ve been iffy about using Path since their privacy fiasco, you should be good to go with this latest update. Path has enhanced security by hashing user contact data so that it is anonymized as well as fixed a few bugs. To grab the latest update for Path head to the appropriate “Store” and download it now.
