Information about APPs that allow the resale of unused SMS
Lately there has been released on the market some APPs that allow mobile phone customers to sell for a fee unused SMS included in their bundles.
As also confirmed by the Communications Authority, these APPs, with different names and graphics advertise earnings through the resale of SMS, do not comply with current regulations and are not safe, once downloaded to your mobile phone, they generate unauthorized and illegal services.
The SMS given to the App, no longer controllable by either Lycamobile or by the user, will then be sent to unknown recipients with the original user’s phone number and with various contents and purposes. The user who adheres to these initiatives also exposes their personal data to risks and loses control of its mobile number while remaining legally responsible.
Furthermore, the resale of telephone traffic is prohibited by the General Contract Conditions and users who subscribe to these services and / or use those APPs that may be subject to the blocking of the service and / or termination of the contract.
The use of these Apps can expose you to very significant legal risks and Lycamobile recommends its customers not to download or not use these applications and promptly remove them from devices if they have already been installed.
