I stopped installing Scam Shield on my phone when I read that it would take all my contacts etc and store them on t-mobile network.   WTF??   isn’t that like making sure all the chickens are in the hen house with the foxes??

We do ask our customers for contact permissions from the app solely for in app presentation purposes to show the contact name in the activity log versus the 10 digit number or the Caller ID name. However, we do NOT upload the contact list to our network or to an internal/external database. The app simply reads the permission to update the name in the app.
