Creepy Search Feature

Postby usa_wjrz9py1 » Fri Sep 07, 2018 5:19 am

Hi,

I tried searching for a company when I was in the city, and the contact / Name for a friend that works for that company came up. How is this possible?

Waze can access your contacts if you hit "Allow" on the pop-up asking for permission
https://support.google.com/waze/answer/6273525?hl=en

I use this all the time when I go to friends' houses, I just search for their names in Waze and it finds the address I registered in my Phone's contacts for them, saves me a lot of time compared to saving them as favorites in Waze or typing their addresses manually.
