Path deletes all auto-harvested phonebook data and makes it an opt-in feature

Path founder Dave Morin, in a post called “We are sorry.”

We believe you should have control when it comes to sharing your personal information. We also believe that actions speak louder than words. 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.

The right move.
