Mobile Gaming apps leaking your private information to NSA

Angry Birds and other Mobile Gaming apps leaking your private information to NSA and GCHQ.

According to the latest documents leaked by former U.S. Government contractor Edward Snowden, Some of the world’s most popular Smartphone applications are telling British (GCHQ) and American intelligence agencies (NSA) everything about you. The National Security Agency (NSA in the US) and the Government Communications HQ (GCHQ in the UK) has received location information and other details.

The Guardian broke the story which has been uncovered in leaked documents and said it “effectively means that anyone using Google Maps on a smartphone is working in support of a GCHQ system”.

GCHQ has declined to comment on the leak as it doesn’t comment on intelligence matters but said all its activities are “authorised, necessary and proportionate”.
