CiQ's response to the testing:

The good thing about this app is that it is shipped w/logging off, but if it were ever turned on, you'd be hard-pressed to know it. The best solution is to remove it. Root your phone and install a custom ROM, making sure the developer has removed CiQ.


Knowledge is power, folks. Arm yourselves.
Great job genius, 1 out of 4 links worked
