Earlier today we heard that Google had confirmed that they do not use the Carrier IQ software, and now the company behind the software has released a statement which they claim that they do not record your data.
You can see the statement below, although it isn’t clear as yet whether this is some sort of damage limitation attempt by the company or actually an explanation of what the software does.
While a few individuals have identified that there is a great deal of information available to the Carrier IQ software inside the handset, our software does not record, store or transmit the contents of SMS messages, email, photographs, audio or video. For example, we understand whether an SMS was sent accurately, but do not record or transmit the content of the SMS. We know which applications are draining your battery, but do not capture the screen.
You can find out more information about the Carrier IQ software, which was discovered by Trevor Eckhart, here, and what the software supposedly does.
