    Default What can people do with your UDID?

    If you register your UDID on some sites in order to get access to the iOS Beta programs, what could be the negative consequences?

    Thanks in advance.

    I guess there is always a risk when giving information out to any website, but I would also like to know this answer.

    Afaik...Worst case scenario is an experienced programmer can push spam to your device using your UDID or if someone has a bunch of time on their hands, they would be able to access important information that was saved to your UDID. It could be a violation of privacy depending on what's been saved to your identifier.
