Mobile application marketplaces, developers and service providers need to do a better job of protecting children’s privacy, according to an Federal Trade Commission (FTC) report released Thursday.The report was based on an FTC survey that found mobile apps for children aren’t upfront about what they’re doing with user data. “At the FTC, one of our highest priorities is protecting children’s privacy, and parents deserve the tools to help them do that,” said FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz in a statement. “Right now, it is almost impossible to figure out which apps collect data and what they do with it. The kids app ecosystem needs to wake up, and we want to work collaboratively with industry to help ensure parents have the information they need.”
