Dubai police issue warning over data breach via online mobile games


Daijiworld Media Network - Dubai (SHP)
 
Dubai, Dec 7: With the increasing usage of smartphones, online gaming is one of the most accessible features. The mobile stores offer free to play games which in recent time have gained strong fanbase. However, the Dubai Police are urging their residents to be cautious when playing free online video games.
 
In a tweet, the police said that most of these games make a profit by collecting and exploiting personal information - which is a breach of privacy. Among them, popular online games include PUBG, Mobile Legends and Call of Duty Mobile. These apps are wildly popular among smartphone users and do not cost anything to download and play.
 
 
The police also asked residents to spread awareness among family and friends to prevent their data from falling into the wrong hands.
