If your child has his or her own smartphone — or he or she just loves borrowing yours to play the latest games — the Federal Trade Commission is advising caution. The FTC found in a recent report that developers who make apps specifically geared towards children have done little to address privacy concerns since the commission’s first report on children’s apps earlier this year. According to the new report, app developers still aren’t doing enough to teach parents what kind of data is being collected from their children, where that data winds up or who can access it.
