We posted this alert back in March, and now California Attorney General Kamala Harris has released a recommended set of privacy best practices for app developers and advertising networks entitled “Privacy on the Go: Recommendations for the Mobile Ecosystem.” Written after consulting a “broad spectrum of stakeholders,” including app developers, ad networks, privacy professionals and privacy advocates, the best practices urges those developing apps to consider building privacy protections in from the start and to display brief notices prior to taking actions such as data collection.
Those of us here at the Privacy & Security Matters blog approve of the title.
