How to disable Facetime till Apple fixes serious privacy flaw

As you may have heard, there is a flaw on Apple Facetime for iOS and Mac that makes it possible for someone to listen in on what the microphone of another user hears even if that person hasn’t accepted the call.

It only happens if you add someone to a group conversation and Apple has temporarily disabled Group Facetime to prevent it from being exploited. However, in an abundance of caution you can also disable Facetime:


On iOS (iPhone and iPad)

Click on Settings

Scroll down till you see Facetime and click.

Toggle off the green button on top

On Mac

Open the Facetime App

Click on Facetime on top of the screen

Select “Turn off Facetime.”
