Facebook wants access to your Messages on iOS

Apple has provided a lot of customization options with its new iOS 14. From various customization to privacy features, Apple has opened a box of treasures with its latest OS update.

Facebook is now trying to monopolize over one particular feature provided in iOS 14. after seeing that users can change their default browser and mail apps on their iPhone and iPad.  Facebook feels that it should be allowed to become the default text messaging app for iOS users.

Yes, you heard it right. Facebook now wants access to users Text messages.

Apple does not provide an option that uses a third-party app to send and receive SMS. Users have always been using Apple’s Messages app to use text messaging.

Stan Chudnovsky, Facebook’s vice president for Messenger, said, “We feel people should be able to choose different messaging apps and the default on their phone. Generally, everything is moving this direction anyway.”

Facebook believes that Apple is trying to follow Android by allowing to choose the default apps in its OS. The company argues that it should also provide default apps options to allow users to choose a messaging app of their liking.

Facebook owns the three world’s most favorite messaging apps WhatsApp, Instagram, and Messenger. The company already has access to the personal data of billions of users. Now it also wants our text messaging.

Facebook has often asked apple to allow users to choose Messenger as the default messaging app on iOS, but Apple has always refused to accept Facebook demands.

What do we think?

Messenger certainly isn’t the best messaging application available in the world. However, it has undoubtedly provided many attractive features to use in chats. But are they allowing it to become a default text application in iOS? No way, it’s not required nether it is necessary.

For starters, if it is allowed to become a default messaging application, then it will provide the company access to even more data of users. They will read our texts, will know what we plan to buy, what bank services use, etc., and much more info.

What it will do with this information? Simple it will clog us with Advertisement!

Apple should allow users to change all app defaults on iOS; we have absolutely no reason to give Facebook access to more data. It will just add to our privacy and security nightmare regarding Facebook.
