Careful What You Do On Your EVO 3D – You Are Being Watched!
There has been a lot of hype over the last few months about privacy, security, tracking of data and GPS coordinates, etc. One would think that after all this mess, companies would be a bit more transparent as to why they collect the kind of information that they do. However, it seems that it is still believed that information is a powerful thing to have, so companies keep on collecting it. According to a message that was sent to us by XDA member TrevE, there is something in the Gingerbread 2.3.4 OTA for the Sensation called User Behavior Logging, which has the ability to record virtually every single action on your device. You can expect it to record things like: apps you install and open, amount of time on each app, virtually every intent you open up, and location information in what seems to be hex format, among a few other things. All this data is then sent to an Amazon cloud storage IP. TrevE goes on to tell us that this CIQ app itself is not new, but the stuff located in the framework and the kind of data that it puts out is different from before.
Luckily for all of you EVO 3D owners out there, the dev has successfully removed this app from the framework, so if you are concerned about your privacy, I’d strongly suggest that you take a quick look at what the dev has to offer.
The new OTA update from HTC on the evo3d in 2.3.4 included CIQ app and stuff in framework called User Behavior Logging.
