Quick bugfix to remove temporary image files on Android

December 2, 2015

This morning we became aware of an issue regarding temporary images that were not being removed on Android devices (iOS is not affected).

We started investigating immediately and spotted the problem within 14 minutes. The fix for it has subsequently been pushed within 67 minutes. The app will automatically be updated and the issue will hence also be fixed automatically. This update will also remove all previous temporary pictures.

It is very important to stress that all your data is fully encrypted: your pictures, transactions, etc. are all stored in an encrypted way. Because this data is secured the camera app has to use a temporary file. This temporary file was unfortunately not properly removed. This has now been fixed. The chance that this temporary file was abused is very very small.

We want to sincerely apologise for this inconvenience. We hope that our swift response indicates that we take this seriously. Even when matters go wrong we do our sincere and utter best to fix them as quickly as possible.
