Is the SMSPup Facebook App Safe?

Probably not.

First of all, SMSPup collects marketing information from its clients in exchange for free SMS points.  The more they know about you, the better that picture marketeers have on your demographic.  So, where is the best place for marketers to gather your personal information?  Facebook of course, where you are possibly at your most social and uninhibited.

If you sign up for the SMSPup Facebook app you are greeted with the following…


Access my basic information Includes name, profile picture, gender, networks, user ID, list of friends, and any other information I've shared with everyone
