Qatari apps that would be spies

For those who can go to Qatar World Cup, which will be held from November 20, 2022, there will be a technological requirement: install two applications. These are focused on helping the transit of people and health issues due to covid-19. However, cybersecurity experts made a call because they could be spy apps.

The two platforms being talked about are Ehteraz and Hayya, which would also be almost mandatory for every fan who goes to the country to enjoy the soccer tournament.

The first is a covid-19 tracking app, while the second is official for the World Cup so that people can access the subway for free and track tickets to matches. So far everything normal.

However, they begin to raise doubts when they request permission to access phone settings, such as reading, deleting or changing all cell phone content, connecting to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, having priority over other applications, preventing the phone from stay in sleep mode, location, make calls and disable the screen lock.
