For information, Linphone privacy policy is available at

Regarding the contacts, Linphone only sends the phone number (and no other information) to our presence server which doesn't store any of the information it receives.

I agree there is an issue with the application if it sends the phone numbers when you are not using a account.

Anyway, if you go in the account settings, you can disable it using the "Friendlist subscribe" checkbox.

Oh, that's pretty surprising discovery. I didn't know my address book was shared with some service, I haven't given it my consent. What Linphone asks is to have access to the contacts to be able to call them directly, not to upload them to some server.

Could this be confirmed by developers please? If it's indeed this way, there should be an option to opt-out of this, especially when the user has no account configured.

its you address book sending, you can deny send address book from your phone to server linphone direct in settings iPhone. Its normal, if you approve accept to your address book form app. Its for find friends, where choice to linphone.
For example Skype, viber, whatsapp make same, and you messages all, there you sending trouch all this apps, going in open stand. but linphone, if you choice Lime chat security, going all security.

What I meant, is the app is checking all friends on my contact list (19xxx224846, 12xxx851177)  against even though I am using an external sip server Seems like it is trying to search if they have a linphone account via subscribe. 

How do I disable my app from sending and receiving info to sip:address@hidden. Is the app secretly uploading my data to linphone server?

Please describe how you created your account.
What do you mean by you have Linphone Contact added to your address book ?
Do you use a contact synchronization with Google or Exchange or something else ?
