Path App Growing Virally by Spamming Your Plumber

Path app is growing virally by spamming your plumber, your electrician, your dentist …
 


Saying that you have photos to share with them.

Stephen Kenwright shares what happens when you signup to Path which triggers Path’s spam bot. 
No response from Path yet – the guys over there are probably still in bed. In the meantime Path has called two plumbers; an electrician; a dentist; my girlfriend’s grandparents and a local takeaway, letting them know I have photos that they should probably see (I don’t have photos for them).
His 30 min life on Path led to Path spam bot spamming his entire addressbook with spam text messages and phone calls.

If you want to keep your addressbook safe, do not install Path app.
