Periscope update keeps viewers from showing up at your house
WITH ITS FIRST-EVER UPDATE, THE LIVE-STREAMING APP PERISCOPE FIXES A FEATURE THAT REVEALED — USERS’ HOME ADDRESSES.
Twitter’s video-streaming app Periscope may have buried Meerkat’s hopes of being the go-to way to show the world your office refrigerator. But until today, it had a rather scary privacy issue. When a broadcaster shared their location, instead of that location being a neighborhood or city, viewers could zoom all the way into the broadcaster’s whereabouts. An update to the app has fixed that awesome feature for stalkers.
The update for the iOS app is available now and only zooms into a large geographic region rather than pinpointing a location.
