Every iPhone user knows it: Siri, the friendly software, which by language turns into a personal assistant. As soon as an Internet connection, Siri can inform you about appointments or a good restaurant in the vicinity call-and you by means of GPS to go there. However, Siri can also chatter a lot. A security issue that has existed since iOS 5 and has not been closed by Apple. If you want to avoid unpleasant surprises, you should check your settings and make your iPhone safer.
