Security breach can force your Apple iPhone to make costly phone calls
When you click on a phone number from a link in iOS, you are asked if you want to make the call, right? So how could these expensive calls take place under your nose. Well, the truth is that if you go to a native mobile app, the call can be made without requesting your permission. It is that flaw that is being taken advantage of by the criminals.
The best way to put an end to this thievery, is for companies like Facebook and Google to put up the prompts on their sites just to make sure that you do give permission for your phone to dial a number obtained from a link on a native mobile app.
