No - that program lets your computer reach out and spy on other computers. Unless your system has malware (which gladly we are starting to learn about thanks to some brave whistleblowers) - you can control your Mac's security in the Sharing Preference pane. When you want your Mac to be remotely observable, choose screen sharing or remote management and ...

I'm pretty sure it can get installed as part of Office, as well as separately. One app not to worry about, in fact - as it can only be used to 'dial out' to a Windows machine, not another Mac.

According to https://developer.apple.com/app-store/review/guidelines/#privacy you only need a privacy policy if your app has account sign in capabilities. 17.5 Apps that include account registration or access a user’s existing account must include a privacy policy or they will be rejected If your app just links to other apps and they handle the sign ...

This completely depends on the app. There's nothing that by default sends identifying in formation about your system to the App developers, the App would have to have been written in order to have this behavior. Depending on the app, however, it's possible that some might. You didn't mention if you're on iOS or Mac OS. If you're on Mac OS, and you're ...

Apple allows end users to remove any MDM profiles that could be seen as Malware if you didn't agree to enroll the device in the first place. Apple ensures pretty well that a company cannot push these settings to any device except ones they strictly own.

Can they, yes. Do they any/every time you sign in to the App Store, I think not. Apple would probably be able to collate your device's anonymous and unique ID with your Apple ID if you opt in or agree explicitly to a question that informs you that the serial number will be checked to verify eligibility for a specific product. You might capture the ...

It probably uses iCloud as a method, possibly the iCloud Key-Value Store. As far as that storage goes… The total space available in your app’s iCloud key-value storage is 1 MB per user. The maximum number of keys you can specify is 1024, and the size limit for each value associated with a key is 1 MB. For example, if you store a single large value ...

Apple advises developers to store app login credentials in the encrypted iOS Keychain. When you delete an app from your phone it doesn't delete the related records from the Keychain. Keychains are secure storage containers, which means that when the keychain is locked, no one can access its protected contents. In OS X, users can unlock a ...

It looks like every app determines what to show on its notifications; I don't see a global switch. You can, however, turn the lock screen notification off. Find it on Settings > Notifications > [App], look for "Show on lock screen" and turn it off to disallow the app to show its notifications when the phone is locked. Skype does not have the "Show ...
