Privacy Notification for iOS users

Aug 9, 2019

We were recently made aware by a security researcher that an advertising SDK in our app on iOS was sending some data (including device language, carrier and advertising ID) to an ad network on app startup, before users accepted our Privacy Policy. Our engineers immediately looked into it and found that this was indeed the case with one particular advertising SDK. We immediately fixed this issue, submitted a new version to the iOS App Store, and this version has been made available for our users.

We would like to thank the security researcher for pointing this out to us, so that we could quickly resolve the issue. We take our users’ privacy very seriously and always encourage such feedback to continuously keep improving our services.
