I was speaking to my insurance agent yesterday afternoon taking care of some life insurance changes, and my agent congratulated me on my recent wedding (July) and inquired about my upcoming honeymoon to Rome. After the call ended, within a few minutes, I get the following push notification from an app I have on my phone:
I thought that was pretty creepy, and a few others have mentioned that they think the application had access to the phone conversation I just had, but as a mobile developer myself I find this extremely unlikely, if not impossible, that this is the case, but I would be interested in knowing what could perhaps be some reasonable explanations. (I've tried contacting theChive, but no response yet.)
I'll lay out the relevant facts below:
- I have theChive, a photo sharing/entertainment app installed on my iPhone.
- At some point I may have shared something from the app to Facebook, giving them some amount of permissions over my Facebook account.
- I likely posted/commented something on Facebook within the last month or two about my honeymoon plans to Rome.
- I haven't been on the app in quite a while, probably a few months.
Can anyone think of something more reasonable than "they tapped my phone", and/or think of any other possibilities perhaps other than the Facebook/phone call coincidence angle?
