Apple monitors your iPhone usage to assign you a ‘trust score’

In order to prevent unauthorized purchases at the iTunes Store, Apple has started assigning a "trust score" to each iOS device. I do not know how this is calculated, but the number of calls and emails sent will be received by phone or tablet.

Despite the exaggerated goal of fraud prevention, the confidence score associated with the iPhone is likely to raise concerns of privacy advocates. Still, Apple promises not to obey the user.

The company updated the iTunes Store Privacy Statement as follows:

"To identify and prevent fraud, information on the use of your device (including the approximate number of phone calls and emails sent and received) is used to calculate the trust level of the device. The submission is designed so that Apple can not learn the real value of your device.Score will be saved at a fixed time on our server.

How iPhone's confidence score is used

Apple has not revealed how the iPhone's confidence score was calculated, perhaps to prevent fraudsters from finding solutions. Companies may pay attention to typical usage patterns, including frequency of email and calls. Changing this setting may mean that the actual owner of the phone no longer controls the phone.

Apple is insured solar It does not monitor who is communicating, how many calls and mails are sent. And the company promises not to store this data in the long term. Score is not a unique identifier that can be used to deliver targeted ads.

You can not know what your confidence score is for your device.

Apple and privacy

iPhone makers have recently been asked to answer a series of questions about privacy policy. "We believe that privacy is a fundamental human right, we believe that we intentionally design products and services to minimize the collection of customer data, users."

Apple stands out from other high-tech companies.
