Some iPhone apps record your actions without permission, report says

From CNET: iPhone apps from some major companies are reportedly recording how you use them without asking your permission.

Air Canada, Expedia,, Singapore Airlines, Abercrombie & Fitch and sister brand Hollister are among the companies mentioned Wednesday in a TechCrunch report.

They apparently embed "session replay" software -- which lets developers record the screen to see how people use the app -- from a company called Glassbox, so your every interaction is essentially recorded via screenshots.

The software is supposed to mask sensitive data in these screenshots, but the report noted that the App Analyst found that Air Canada's app wasn't always doing so properly.
