    I didn't see a thread about this.. so here is a FYI Fox News video to give everyone a heads-up. Seems that many of the flashlight apps are malware that when activated will access all your photos & personal info and then transmit it to a 3rd party... many times in a foreign country.




    Edit: Well, I didn't look far enough back in the threads.. I found where this had already been addressed. My mistake.

    There's nothing wrong with a little reminder every now and then. Sometimes we let our guard down. Thanks :supergrin:
