Sneaky ways wellness apps invade your privacy
As useful as health apps and fitness apps may be, a stunning new report from the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a consumer education and advocacy nonprofit, says they may also pose "considerable privacy risks" for users. The group came to this conclusion after studying 43 of the most popular wellness apps (half for iPhones, half for Androids; 23 free and 20 paid). In short, using a health or fitness app on your smartphone could lead to unwittingly sharing a very personal record that you'd rather keep private.
