Heart Rate application or heart rate detector is not a new application. Although it is not equipped with a sensor to detect heart rates, various applications can use the iPhone’s camera to detect heart rates.
One example is the Withings application which detects heartbeats from the pulse in the finger. The trick is to attach a finger to the camera, which is where the camera will set the active flash light. The pulse will be detected on the camera, and will be calculated by the application.
Well there is one application on the App Store that turns out to be deceptive, aka Scam. The application claims to be an application that has a heart rate detecting feature.
The funny thing is, the application does not detect heart rates from the camera, especially from heart rate sensors. But users are required to put a finger on the Home button, aka Touch ID sensor.
Actually the application does not detect anything, but deceives users by saying that the heartbeat can be detected by sticking a finger to the Touch ID. Do you know what will happen next?
Yes, the application will authorize App Store payments. No kidding, the price can reach $ 90. Of course users who do not understand will surely believe in the commands that appear in the application.
Fortunately, the application has been cleared by Apple because many people report it. For you application users in the App Store, it’s good to be careful before using certain applications.
