Report: Some Android apps may be illegally gathering kids' info

Used to be that people complained about the TV being a bad babysitter for kids. Now we hand them our pocket TVs – our smartphones – without a second thought so they can watch a show, play a game or use an app. Problem is, that little TV has gotten smart, and some apps are tracking what the kids are doing.

Following revelations of users being heavily tracked by Facebook and seemingly every other app out there, we can hardly be surprised at the revelation apps track kids too, but according to a post on BGR, some of the tracking isn’t legal, and some of the information the apps gather on kids is also being shared.

BGR notes that the primary offenders are Android apps. Check out what the apps are tracking – and what they do with the information - in this report: https://petsymposium.org/2018/files/papers/issue3/popets-2018-0021.pdf
