Re: FreedomPop has been accused of being email spammers
What mechanism could FreedomPop use to acquire your contacts list?
You'd either need to be running an app that has permission to read the phone's contacts list, or a password that allows access to your Email account. Or maybe, just maybe, acquire it via unencrypted Emails you send?
Or if you call/text someone, Freedompop acquires this and re-uses the info to text spam?
I don't think so, you'd better check your 'puter for viruses.
All I can see in the Ts and Cs about this is:
Refer a Friend... friend's email address... FreedomPop stores this information ... Your friend may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove this information...
I say: If in doubt, don't refer a friend.
That post was upvoted a lot - everyone must know something I don't - please tell!
