COPPA Update

Premium Content

An FTC study released Mon reveals that the agency is investigating whether some mobile apps aimed at children have violated the law by collecting and sharing personal information. FTC could expand the COPPA rules to cover mobile apps. The study surveyed 400 of the top apps aimed at children and found just 20% disclosed their privacy practices. Calling the survey results "disappointing," FTC said "it is clear that more needs to be done in order to provide parents with greater transparency in the mobile app marketplace."
