The FTC and YOU !

Android Flashlight App Developer Settles FTC Charges It Deceived Consumers

The FTC is starting to get involved… not sure what happens when they find out how many apps there really are out there!

Summary: the app actually had a privacy policy, but it did not disclose it was sending unique identifiers and GPS coordinates. This is considered a ‘deceptive business practice’.

I wonder what was the “history” behind this move ? Did FTC receive a complaint ?

Or was it some lawyer user who decided he would push it to FTC ?
