I'm told this may also be a hoax.
Can it be debunked.
Bitstrips, the fun cartoon generation app growing in popularity on social media, is it turns out a Trojan horse from the NSA to tap your Facebook feed and cell phone.
Edward Snowden in his most recent disclosure revealed the origin of the bitstrip program.Bitstrip an NSA Trojan.
According to a statement from Snowden the NSA knew that someday their spying would be made public.
They knew that people would respond by demanding more privacy settings. So in response the NSA set up a team to develop apps that will by pass privacy settings, in a legal way.
In a statement from Snowden it said.
To use these apps you have to agree to the Terms of Service, and agree to give the app access to your Facebook profile. So these developers were tasked to develop apps that would go viral.
Games were looked at, but there are so many games out there already. Then someone said cartoons and comics.
Facebook is a visual platform, so pictures do well.
Snowden then details how nefarious this Trojan horse is. Even if a person does not use Bitstrips they may be giving the NSA access.
The act of clicking like or posting a comment on Bitstrip someone else posted allows the app a peek into your profile.
