Now there is an app to see what you’re down as on your contacts’ phones. So for example, I could be down as “Martina”, “Martina Niece”, “Martina Moscow” or “Martina Mater” – or something considerably more interesting.
In order to avail of this search, you don’t need to enable the app to access your calls, texts or contacts (which makes me question how genuine those “permissions” really are).
The app was developed for other purposes (identify missed calls etc), but finding out what others think of you is the reason it is being used.
If you’re not downloading it, you could at least rename your more questionable contacts.
