A study was conducted on the top 50 free iOS and Android apps, gauging what data they transmit and how invasive they are. The results are shocking, as iOS apps seem to be much more invasive than their Android counterparts. Surprisingly, iOS apps actually transfer more personal data than Android apps. Yes, Android has a bad rep for malware, and this isn’t exactly malware, but it isn’t the best practice.
Just know that these apps are not considered malicious in any way. They do transmit personal information, but it isn’t anything out of the ordinary. But it’s an interesting statistic, to say the least. What do you guys think of this? Leave a comment!
