"App developers don’t always know what they’re doing, and careless or rushed coding may not stand up to entry-level hacking," says Rob Pegoraro, a Tech Columnist at Yahoo Tech. "If you use an insecure or hacked app on your phone, you could be exposing its personal data — like your address book, location, messages, and so on." Next time you install an app, ask yourself these questions:
- What personal data am I giving up?
- Does the app explain why it needs this data?
- What is the app's business model?
- How do I delete my account?
Read Rob's column for more. Having a choice of a million apps is a good thing. But many app developers may not have considered the seriousness or risk of a data breach. When it comes to your kids, shouldn't you?
