Gust MEES's insight:

 

Disconnect Kids is a fun and unique educational app that teaches children (and their parents) about online privacy. Disconnect Kids also actively blocks requests for data about your web-browsing and in-app activity from the biggest mobile tracking services.


It’s the first (and only) iOS app that stops this personal data from ever leaving your device.

It’s about places, not about tracking

When we were building Lokki, we talked to countless people, teenagers, children and adults all over the world. Nobody really wants to be tracked — or track others. Thus, Lokki is about people, places and putting you in charge of your privacy.

 

Lokki sends you automatic notifications when family members or friends enter or exit certain places — but only if they decide to let you know. Plus you can hide your whereabouts whenever you want to go undercover, or just take a nap.

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Summer 2013 App Reputation Report to examine the hidden behaviors behind free and paid mobile apps

 

The cloud-based, fully automated Appthority App Risk Management Service performed static, dynamic and behavioral app analysis on the 400 most popular free and paid apps on the iOS and Android platforms.

 

  

Appthority analyzed each app for particular behaviors within a test environment

.

Highlights from the App Reputation Report are:

 

- Overall, 83% of the most popular apps are associated with security risks and privacy issues.

 

- iOS apps exhibited more risky behaviors than Android apps. 91% of iOS apps exhibit at least one risky behavior, as compared to 80% of Android apps.

 

- 95% of the top free apps and 77.5% of the top paid apps exhibited at least one risky behavior.

 

- 78% of the most popular free Android apps identify the user's ID (UDID).

 

- Even though Apple prohibits its developers from accessing the UDID, 5.5% of the tested iOS apps still do.

 

- 72% of the top free apps track for the user's location, compared to 41% of paid apps.

 

- Although paid apps already generate revenue when downloaded, 59% of paid iOS and 24% of paid Android apps still support in-app purchasing.

 

- Furthermore, 39% of paid iOS and 16% of paid Android apps still share data with ad networks.
