Mac Developer: Uber Secretly Tracked Users, Spied On Lyft Prompting Tim Cook To Threaten Apple Store Expulsion | Zero Hedge
Uber Secretly Tracked Users, Spied On Lyft Prompting Tim Cook To Threaten Apple Store Expulsion | Zero Hedge: "
The idea of fooling Apple, the main distributor of Uber’s app, began in 2014. At the time, Uber was dealing with widespread account fraud in places like China, where tricksters bought stolen iPhones that were erased of their memory and resold. Some Uber drivers there would then create dozens of fake email addresses to sign up for new Uber rider accounts attached to each phone, and request rides from those phones, which they would then accept. Since Uber was handing out incentives to drivers to take more rides, the drivers could earn more money this way."
If the rules allow iPhone device holders to perpetrate fraud, I think the rules should be changed.
