Now a number of programs allow you to look into the phone book of a friend or relative. Among those of GetContact, a few years ago the application remained among the popular in the App Store. Moreover, the service was originally used to calculate incoming calls from spammers. Now the program allows you to find out how a person is recorded in another's contact list. However, Kukanov strongly discourages doing something like that, because GetContact also requests access to the user's phone book. As a result, the user allows all numbers stored there to be uploaded to the company's server.

By “merging” other people's numbers, you need to understand that they often serve for authentication. The current privacy policy of such services most often implies the right to transfer personal data in favor of third-party companies.
