Posted by

An official statement from BLU Products says the company has identified and has quickly removed a recent security issue caused by a 3rd party app on six BLU mobile devices. The app had been collecting unauthorized personal data such as text messages, call logs, and contacts.


The affected devices include:

  1. R1 HD
  2. Energy X Plus 2
  3. Studio Touch
  4. Advance 4.0 L2
  5. Neo XL
  6. Energy Diamond

The affected application has since been self-updated and the functionality verified to be no longer collecting or sending this information.
