You must be already aware of the fact that Apple has issued a statement earlier according to which the user would be notified if any application try to get the access of address book in upcoming software update. Before that, all the contacts loaded on the server of an application could be misused by the developers. If you want to get the feature right now, install ContactPrivacy tweak from Cydia.
Due to the fact that it is a tweak, don’t expect any icon on the springboard. Also, you wouldn’t get any option to configure it in the settings. It is a really handy tweak for the people who are concerned about their privacy. ContactPrivacy has been developed by a known hacker – Ryan Petrich who is known for his amazing tweaks in Cydia.
Of course, you would need a Jailbroken iDevice if you want to use ContactsPrivacy. The latest version of the tweak is v1.1 which has been recently updated to fix an unknown crash with WhatsApp. Would you prefer installing this tweak or instead prefer waiting for upcoming software update from Apple? Let’s know what do you think about it in the comment section.
