Author Topic: Another warning about using your personal phone.  (Read 3038 times)

In a club the other night a girl I got friendly with gave me her number.

On my I phone I have Facebook. With that comes messenger

Because that girl had messenger it showed on my list of contacts on messenger. From Messenger you can access someone's Facebook account.

The same could happen to any of you if you use your real number.

Even worse to follow, as Facebook bought out WhatsApp yesterday in a $17bn deal.

Most apps do ask you before accessing your contact list, very easy to click and give the permission but if you are vigilant it should be no problem.

WhatsApp Don't. If you add WhatsApp to your smartphone, your contact details will appear on any one who has your number stored on thier mobile, irrespective of whether you want them as a WhatsApp contact or not.

I forgot about that. WhatsApp is a really horrible app, it's intrusive and open to abuse. Some punters use it, they tend to be guys who want to abuse the free message system. Some of them have some really personal photos on their profiles. :scare:

Which is why I use an old Nokia Phone + PAYG SIM, which does not even have internet access, let alone any fancy apps, locators, maps etc.

I notice you went pretty quiet on the ParisB thread after your ridiculous attempts to defend her  :rolleyes:

It is also abused the other way a swell... I recall reading on this forum same thing about a WG showing her photos in her profile as well. Worse one is where a punter found a pic of a pimp and only realsied then that he was chatting to the pimp all that time  :scare:

But extremely popular with people who don't read or understand the warnings.

No Hun. We happened to be in the same nightclub and got on quite well so exchanged numbers. Am just using that as an example as to what can happen with a phone.

Quite, i once again hope punters read this, like you i use a very old PAYG phone with no net access, its all i need for punting. ;)

Easy solution, don't use Facebook or Twitter and crap like that, imho they are for children and idiots. I cannot recall a time where any good came of using them but everyday stories about kids killing themselves due to bullying are reported. Also if you ever watch Jeremy Kyle and crap like that the morons on there are always going on about facebook.

I agree smiths, a very cheap and basic option, no excuse for not having this basic security measure in place.

Been a while since I last posted - but still "lurking" and keeping uptodate!

As I've been reading the ParisB issue ... since I am single guy with no ties etc to anything/anyone else - does it still matter for me to get a punting phone?

having one will make you safer , do you want a prossie to talk to your mum ?

Offline oz1990

Indeed it does make sense it'll keep me safer etc

There is VERY little if none at all connection between me and my family via social media etc.

For twenty quid I would, but its up to you at the end of the day. You never know what is around the corner and imho it is much better to be prepared.  :hi:

I strongly advise you to use a dedicated punting phone or Sim. You may be single now but might not be soon and then it might matter more, although even being single unless you dont care about your family and friends knowing your a punter i wouldnt chance not use a punting phone/Sim.

It is also abused the other way a swell... I recall reading on this forum same thing about a WG showing her photos in her profile as well. Worse one is where a punter found a pic of a pimp and only realsied then that he was chatting to the pimp all that time  :scare:

Or in my case, a girl with hidden face profile on AW give me her number so I added it to my phone contacts, and it automatically synced to my WhatsApp. She had a face photo on her WhatsApp and she was stunning. So I booked her only to discover the picture was fake. Cunning. Very cunning.

I have often though the same thing, but even if you have absolutely nothing to lose, do you want a WG to be able to contact you back through the same route friends do? And if the WG turned out to be a flake would you want her having your real details? I realise that any unpaid one night stand could turn out to be a flake who fixates on you for some reason but that's rather easier to explain to your friends, colleagues etc than why a prostitute is pursuing you!

They're called "Smartphones".  Which is why I, for one, would never buy one 'cos they're smarter than me.  [And before certain other members add it, I know; it isn't difficult!]

They are, effectively, a tracking device on you which also allows you to make phone calls.

Old school £10 basic phone all the way for me :)

I do have a smartphone for "personal" , but i refuse to add that "whatsapp" rubbish to it. The girls at my "normal" job think im weird as I refuse to join in with it. . . . And lo n behold one of them has had to delete it already as she was sick of men sending her cock pics. She even got spammed by 2 girls that looked very much to be touting for business to me , she couldnt understand why 20yr old bi girls are spamming rude pics to an older lady who is clearly straight and looking for a man ..... I nearly said something , but kept quiet as I didnt want to look as if i know "too much" about adult sites/cam girls/escort spammers.

The 2 young stunners were clearly cam girls, photo sellers , or whatever. They must literally spam everyone of all age/gender.

That whats app sounds like a nightmare IMO.

No thanks.

A while ago I wrote a blog with tips on not  using smartphone , ect , for punters. Last thing I need/want is them getting caught out , and some irate wifey bringing drama to my door.
