Path apologizes, issues version 2.0.6

Dave Morin, CEO and co-founder of Path:

“So, as a clear signal of our commitment to your privacy, we’ve deleted the entire collection of user uploaded contact information from our servers. Your trust matters to us and we want you to feel completely in control of your information on Path.

In Path 2.0.6, released to the App Store today, you are prompted to opt in or out of sharing your phone’s contacts with our servers in order to find your friends and family on Path.”

Good on you. I’ll continue to use the app, giving Dave and company the benefit of the doubt.
