Lebanese security forces have warned people in Lebanon against using the CallApp mobile application due to suspicious activity linked to Israel.
“In the framework of constant follow-up of suspicious applications, especially those created by the Israeli enemy, suspicions recently emerged about an application called CallApp, in terms of its operation by this enemy,” the General Directorate of State Security said in a statement on Wednesday.
As such, the Directorate called on Lebanese citizens and residents in Lebanon to be wary of “the dangers of using this application.”
This, it added, is because CallApp provides users with the ability to control and manage all calls on their smartphones.
The app has the ability to identify callers from all around the world, block calls, identify the email address of the caller when applicable, and record calls and social media accounts, State Security explained.
Thus, “its danger lies in its ability to control all the contact data of the phone.”
