    Default Lookout flags "Data Sync+ Key"

    Does anyone know if "Data Sync+" is a bad app? I had it, and lookout flagged it saying it "secretly sends texts to foreign countries" or something similar. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Developer of DataSync here,

    You're not the only one who's noticed. I send a support ticket from Lookout's website, they'll hopefully fix the issue soon. Just to make things clear, DataSync nor it's license key can send text messages because:
    a) The code isn't there (simple as that)
    b) I don't request SMS permission (and no SU in the key either)

    Glad someone noticed. I thought it was weird that the key had the issue, and not the app itself. I'd see it the other way if anything, being completely objective. But good to know someone is looking into it.
