iOS Trivia App QuizUp Under FireRiding high in the saddle in the App Store charts, QuizUp has come under fire about its lax security. General knowledge quizzes are the order of the day, yet it is the registration data and location data allegedly being leaked.

Developer Kyle Richter states in a post headed up as Our Responsibility as Developers the text being sent. Richter goes on to tell of the security glitches in QuizUp: “full names, Facebook IDs, email addresses, pictures, genders, birthday, and even location data” are sent over the application. All these users’ information have been assuaged by Richter, himself.

Some mistakes have been amended as the QuizUp crisis continues.
