FTC report slams app stores for weak child data safeguards
The US Federal Trade Commission has continued its campaign against the collection and use of children's personal data online. A report, released today, entitled "Mobile Apps for Kids: Disclosures Still Not Making the Grade" takes both Google and Apple to task for hosted third-party applications that are failing to "provide any information about the data collected through the app, let alone the type of data collected, the purpose of the collection, and who would obtain access to the data."
