Can an iOS app that has access to Photos get all my photos?

Can a developer collect my photos that I edited and saved in my iPhone album?

One of the function of the an app I am using is to edit photos and save them to my iPhone’s album. In this case, can the developer collect my edited photos?

I did not upload any photos, nor did I share them with anybody.

Also, there is no mention of collecting user’s content in the privacy policy of the said app.

Can anyone help me with this?

Answer

Yes, if you give the application access to your photos and the application has network access, the photos can be taken from your iPhone.

Only use apps you trust

  • If you do not trust the developer, do not install or use their applications.

  • If the developer is not clear and explicit about how they handle your photos, do not install or use their applications.

  • If the developer is not contactable or does not answer your questions, do not install or use their applications.
