Books – Asem al-Ansari:
Visetime is the preferred video communication application for many Apple users, but a software error has been discovered that makes the user listen to another when making a video call even before answering the call.
Additionally, the program error does not only cause the sound of the call recipient to sound, but the attempt to turn off the call by pressing the volume down key or the power key will turn on the camera, although the receiver screen continues to display the incoming call screen . But in fact, the caller will see and hear the other side.
Although Apple said it will introduce a fix for this vulnerability later this week, you will need to disable VisTime and use an alternative application to protect your communications and protect your privacy.
The "Arab Tech News Portal" offered 7 alternative free FaceTime apps on Apple devices:
1. Viber application
