My understanding is that Tapatalk's security is so weak that users are at risk for having passwords hacked.
If anyone here has ever had their CC #s and bank and email passwords stolen (I have!)- much less been a victim of identity theft- then I'd think you'd be jumping off the Tapatalk bandwagon a whole lot more quickly...
I love convenience, but not at the expense of my personal and financial security.
Tapatalk is used by millions of users (it's the #1 paid app in Android and #5 in Apple) on 35,000+ forums including security-centric sites such as XDAdevelopers. I seriously doubt that Google and Apple would promote an application with major security flaws.
As a past identity theft victim, I am also concerned about security. After a quick search prompted by your comments, I was unable to locate any un-patched security concerns or any instance of identity theft attributed to Tapatalk. Although I disagree, I'm sure TPT has reasons for the removal of Tapatalk however - I don't believe it appropriate to alarm users with seemingly unfounded concerns about security.
