Just days before issuing its amended COPPA rule, the FTC published its second survey of mobile apps for children, in which it examined the privacy disclosures and practices of 400 apps designed for kids.  The report, “Mobile Apps for Kids: Disclosures Still Not Making the Grade,” finds that most apps do not sufficiently disclose their actual information-collection practices for parents to make an informed decision before downloading them.  As a result, the FTC has launched numerous non-public investigations to determine whether certain app makers are violating COPPA or engaging in unfair or deceptive practices in violation of the Federal Trade Commission Act.  App companies are clearly a prime target of both federal and state regulators now, and should be focusing intently on their privacy practices.
