Serious FaceTime Bug Lets You Hear a Person's Audio Before They Answer [Update ...


There's a major bug in FaceTime right now that lets you connect to someone and hear their audio without the person even accepting the call.


For this reason, the other person can't necessarily tell that you're listening in to their audio, which has huge privacy implications, especially because the ringing stops as soon as the bug is initiated.


There appears to be no way to avoid this bug short of disabling FaceTime on iOS and macOS entirely, so it's likely Apple will implement a fix quickly.


We do not recommend or condone following these above steps to invade on other peoples' privacy, and we are sharing them only so MacRumors readers can be aware of the issue to protect themselves.


If you follow the steps above and the person on the other end presses the power button on their device to make the call go away, it activates their video.


Update 2: Apple appears to have temporarily addressed the issue by disabling Group FaceTime calls server side.
