Privacy in Mobile Apps

15. februar, 2016
This study investigates privacy issues in 21 mobile apps for Android. All the apps accessed personally identifiable information.

A central finding is that many apps not owned by big America tech companies – such as sports apps and dating apps, transmitted potentially sensitive user data to a complex myriad of third-party services.

Many of these third-party domains are trackers that pose potential privacy risks because we have little knowledge about how they collect, store and link user data.

The experiment was done by SINTEF in Oslo, Norway, in 2015.
