"Security and Privacy Concerns"

July 19, 2012  |  By bugmeifnoth

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Apparently stores your private Skype, and other account username/password information on the imo.im servers.

Cons

Apparently stores your private Skype, and other account username/password information on the imo.im servers.

Summary

I tried using this app behind a firewall and observed that Skype, AOL, Jabber, and other accounts wouldn't authenticate unless I allowed access to the imo.im servers -- strange behavior for an IM client. Their onscreen messages specifically say that these passwords are stored on the device, not external servers. So I read imo's privacy statement, which states explicitly that imo.im may store your Skype and other passwords on their servers!

"We receive and store any information you enter while you access or use the Service ... may include, but is not limited to: ... username, or password"

Concerned, I wrote to imo 's privacy email three times over a week and asked if they stored my usernames and passwords on their servers. I never received a response.

This was reason enough for concern, so I completely deleted imo and reset all my account passwords I entered into the imo app. There are serious security concerns about any app that collects and stores your username and password on its own servers.

Any ideas why?
