This is so scary because these applications want access to our private information. This puts us at risk for so many things. Our privacy is not secured. Why are games accessing this information? They can read our phone status and identity. Scary but true. Should this be banned? Maybe its time to STOP downloading these applications, even though they make life much simpler. Not only do these application bust into our privacy, they take up too much memory on our devices, causing our devices to slow down and in most cases stop working all together. My sound advice is to delete these application and use your browser for safer entry into these services. Remember that only you can modify what is in your device, why give this option to unknown people? I for one am going to delete applications that want full access to my device.
