I came across a site that is able to know all the information about my mobile phone including my telephone number, what network I'm on and much more. It only works if people visit the site via the phones Internet Browser what is installed on every phone. So don't use a browser you would have downloaded such as Chrome or Firefox. So for example for people with the new Samsung if you click App and then the Samsung folder and then click Internet that is your standard internet browser.
If you visit OffersAlerts.com using your standard mobile browser and also make sure you load the page using your mobile data and not via WiFi. You will see if you look at the URL that the site now has grabbed your information.
I thought this was no longer possible to do in the UK? How are they doing this? I understand its all based off the headers used and grabbing the MSISDN but i thought this was no longer possible?
Is this site doing something illegal/dodgy? Is it the standard internet browsers that are allowing our information to be leaked since it doesn't work on browsers like Chrome?
Have I stumbled up on something which should be reported?
