As noted earlier today, Carrier IQ is software that sends all types of personal data and can log every keystroke SMS and more. While there doesn’t appear to be an easy way to disable this on other platforms, this is not the case with iOS.
This tutorial is for iOS 5
You can easily disable Carrier IQ by turning off Diagnostics and here’s how to do just that.
- Open Settings > General
- Select About >Diagostics & Usage
- Select ‘Don’t Send’ or confirm that ‘Don’t Send’ is checked
This is a simple fix if you are concerned about your data being collected and sent.
