F.T.C. To Investigate Mobile App Businesses Over Child Privacy [reuters.com]U.S. regulators are investigating a number of companies in the mobile app marketplace for potentially violating rules protecting children's privacy or requiring accurate disclosures about data collection, the Federal Trade Commission said on Monday.

The FTC did a survey of hundreds of mobile apps designed for children and found that most failed to provide information to parents about what data were collected.

Many also shared information like the device ID, location and phone number without telling parents, the FTC said.
