Danny Miller, 28, urged mobile phone companies to change the design to make it impossible for people to film others without their knowledge.
The actor, who plays Aaron Dingle in Emmerdale, recommended red recording lights to be introduced after a man filmed him having a shower and getting dressed in the gym changing rooms.
He tweeted: “How would you go about petitioning for @Apple @AppleSupport to introduce a RED RECORDING LIGHT on the back of iPhones so that people in the public eye can tell when a little scrubber is trying to record them without their KNOWLEDGE or PERMISSION to do so?? Can anyone help??”
Apple Support replied providing a link for Danny to share the suggestion to which he responded: “Done. If anyone has two minutes can they do the same?”
Happens all the time
He went on: “RED RECORDING LIGHTS on the back of Apple products, whilst recording.
“In order to allow all people, especially people in the public eye and media, that they are on record. Please RT. Thanks in advance.”
In a follow up post, Danny said he’s happy to meet fans but not in private situations.
“I’m happy to meet people,” he tweeted. “Just not when trying to get showered and dressed in a gym changing room and you’ve some pervert who’s too f*****g thick to turn the auto flash light off.”
Danny added: “Happens all the time.
