Due to a major security flaw Apple has temporarily disabled Group FaceTime. This major flaw has allowed anyone to call a phone or Mac and listen in before the other person picks up. Tricking FaceTime into thinking it’s an active call and forcing the person you’re actually calling to start transmitting audio.

Users are advised to disable their FaceTime app until a fix is made available. On iphone devices you need to go to iOS settings and from there disable FaceTime. While On the Mac, you need to go to app Preferences, and uncheck “Enable this account.”

Apple is addressing this major flaw in order to protect iPhone, iPad, and Mac users worldwide.

Group FaceTime feature was disabled on the server side and Apple will release a software update later this week to fix this issue on the client side.
