Apple Disables Group FaceTime after looking over to eavesdropping bug


Recently, a bug has been discovered related to Apple’s Video Calling application called FaceTime, which lets the user hear the audio on the other hand even if the user on the other end hasn’t picked up the call.

This bug has been discovered by 9to5Mac, in which an iPhone user can make a call to another user via FaceTime and can hear the audio of that person even if he hasn’t answered the call. Also, 9to5Mac has confirmed that this issue was also there even if you are making a FaceTime call to Mac.

To hear the voice of the other hand, one must do the same thing which is described here. At first, you have to make a FaceTime Call to a person of which you want to hear the audio, after that, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to add another person on the call and there input your own number. That’s it, following this procedure, a user can hear the audio of the recipient’s phone on another end when the phone is ringing.

Another bug associated with this FaceTime app is discovered by The Verge in which if the person on the other end rejects your call, a video will be broadcasted from his phone of about a second or two.

Looking forward to this bug, a Spokesperson from Apple said, “We’re aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week.” And just after that, Apple has officially disabled the Group calling in its FaceTime app. So, hopefully, they will make changes and fix this bug as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, you can watch a demonstration of this bug in this video.
