If you stay abreast with the latest happenings in the world of tech, especially the Internet, then you’ve probably heard about the Path situation and how they got called out by users and industry alike for accessing users’ address books and uploading contacts to their servers without their knowledge.
AdiOS is an app for Macs that wants to show you all the iOS apps that are accessing your address book. Since this is a Mac app, it can only access iOS apps from iTunes and that means you need to first sync your iOS device with iTunes.
It is important to understand that not all apps need access to your address book contacts without reason. For some, it is required for the way they work. So before revoking the access via AdiOS make sure you know what you are doing.
- Check the iOS apps that are accessing your address book.
