Companies with the most popular mobile apps warned about privacy violations


The Attorney General declared to the press: “We have worked hard to ensure that app developers are aware of their legal obligations to respect the privacy of Californians, but it is critical that we take all necessary steps to enforce California’s privacy laws.”

Companies that own the most popular mobile applications that do not comply with this policy were sent warning letters. One hundred companies were warned. Although the names of the companies that were warned were not made public, the Attorney General expects a response with a specific timeline and plan for the required privacy policy implementation from each warned company. Companies that do not comply with the California Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) risk getting a fine of up to $2500.
