Apple Store Employee Sends Himself Intimate Photo Of Customer


On November 4, before the Apple Store appointment, Fuentes removed all the social media, financial, and banking apps from her iPhone. She was also sure that she has deleted the photos too before getting her screen repaired. However, later it seems that some pictures of her were not deleted. On arrival she handed over her phone to an employee and who started checking her phone.

According to her, she didn't mind him checking her phone because she thought he must be verifying the insurance info. In between, he asked her about the password twice.

"I didn't really pay any mind to it because I just figured he's doing his job, looking into my insurance info or whatever," she wrote on her Facebook post. "He asked for my passcode TWICE in that time frame which I, at the time, didn't think anything of."

When Fuentes returned home back she noticed that a text had been sent to an unsaved number, and the text includes a private photo of her. According to her, the store employee must have gone through her photos and retrieved a private photo of her.

"I open [the text] and instantly wanted to cry!!!" she wrote. "This guy went through my gallery and sent himself one of my EXTREMELY PERSONAL pictures that I took for my boyfriend and it had my geolocation on so he also knows where I live!!!" she wrote.

Later she went to the store and contact the store manager to who assures her that he will look into the matter. Later, the employee confronted that it was his number on which the text was sent, but he was not sure about the attachment photo.


"We are grateful to the customer for bringing this deeply concerning situation to our attention. Apple immediately launched an internal investigation and determined that the employee acted far outside the strict privacy guidelines to which we hold all Apple employees. He is no longer associated with our company." Apple told The Washington Post.
