But according to Lookout, a US based security firm, it is revealed that more than 80 Google Android wallpaper applications are collecting your personal data and sending across a third party on remote servers.


The personal data includes mobile phone numbers, unique subscriber’s numbers, unencrypted data, currently added voicemail  number and many more. One of such application is Jackeey Wallpaper app which includes Stars Wars, My Little Pony and few more, which already had millions of downloads.
