Forum/Tapatalk advice

Post by dominoz » Tue Jan 24, 2017 12:07 pm

Hi everyone
Apologies for posting this on here, as it's to do with tapatalk on my forum, and I can't find the answer anywhere through google.

I have Tapatalk on my forum 3.1.10
If someone quotes me on the forum, I get an email from tapatalk telling me this.
No problem with that.

But if someone sends me a private message on my forum, I get an email from tapatalk, with the information that is in that private message.

Given that it is supposed to be a"private message" how does tapatalk get access to that information.
And does anyone know how to stop them getting that information.

Thanks in advance

I would ask the developers of the extension your using. They will be able to tell you how and if this feature can be disabled.

Yes, thanks
I've been trying to find outwhere I got the extension from, I only use extensions from here.
I just thought I would highlight the problem as a possible security problem.

You wouldn't think that even an extension should have access to what is in a private message.

Anyone or any script that can connect to the database can read private messages.
