For those that are wondering what the heck that is, it, is in fact a secret Facebook app that pays kids; teens, and even adults up to $20 a month to essentially spy on their mobile phone entirely.

Four of our editors, including SHK himself, have previously used the app multiple times.. but there are significant flaws in the app (right down to the fact that it doesn’t disclose that Facebook is behind it). The app sends out numerous e-mails; registrations, and then instructions.

It is against Apple ‘s policy and privacy policy for this app to collect and install itself by means of the “Certificate” function on an iPhone. Apple confirmed on Wednesday that “Facebook Research” has been banned from the app store.

This app asks for a “certificate” to be installed on ones personal mobile device; a Paypal address, and then offers to pay you $20 a month to collect everything from your phone. And in turn — the app sends the information through other servers than what it is willing to admit.
