Samsung accused of data collection in Korea, refutes it


A study conducted by Graduate School of Information Security at Korea University claims that pre-loaded apps on Galaxy S, Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note can record user’s private information like contacts, emails and other data.

However, Samsung has released a statement that flatly denies the findings saying they “never collected or used private information of smartphone users.” Samsung further said that the apps provided by them “have no ability to collect private data.”
