Recently, Kamala Harris, the Attorney General for the State of California, posted the following on her Twitter feed:
- Understand what data is collected, archived, and shared with other companies by a product or service,
- Utilize any opt-out or opt-in service settings,
- Compare data security offerings between competitive products or services
Now that Harris has highlighted the issue, it is an opportunity for the california legislature to amend its state's laws to include apps; and for legislatures in other states to do the same.
What's your opinion of Harris' request? What's your view of privacy policies for mobile device apps?
