Path App Gets Updated to Address Privacy Concerns

Posted February 8, 2012 at 8:54pm by iClarified
Path has released an update to their iOS app which prompts users before saving their contact information to find friends and family using the service.

Path also issued an apology on their blog...

We made a mistake. Over the last couple of days users brought to light an issue concerning how we handle your personal information on Path, specifically the transmission and storage of your phone contacts.


As our mission is to build the world's first personal network, a trusted place for you to journal and share life with close friends and family, we take the storage and transmission of your personal information very, very seriously.

Through the feedback we've received from all of you, we now understand that the way we had designed our 'Add Friends' feature was wrong. We are deeply sorry if you were uncomfortable with how our application used your phone contacts.


You can read the entire letter from Path Co-Founder and CEO Dave Morin here. You can download Path from the App Store for free.
