Ars Technica recently published an article about an application called Stalker that streamlines the collection of unsecured data from iPhone users. Stalker collects passwords, images, email and any other data that is sent unencrypted and organizes it in an easy-to-read interface.
That’s not all. When within range of a smartphone user, hackers can also steal:
- Users’ full names
- Personal information such as birth date, zip code and sex
- Previously accessed network names
- Unencrypted Facebook chats
- Attached documents
One of the reasons we created VyprVPN was to protect mobile devices while users are on the go and defeat snooping applications such as Stalker. VyprVPN encrypts personal information on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices as well as desktops and laptops, so you can rest assured that hackers or snoops will not have access to your email, passwords or any other sensitive information. Use a personal VPN, such as VyprVPN, to prevent Stalker and any other snooping software from stealing your personal information.
