According to a report by Lewis Smith of Mail Online dated 16th Jan 2013 a list of the worst mobile phone apps for extracting personal information has been released by Dr Jason Hong, of the university’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute. Dr Hong and a colleague analysed the 100 most popular Android Apps.
Dr Hong said the following:
'In our work, we also found that people were generally ok with this usage once it was made clear to them.
'In the short-term, the main thrust of our research is to help people understand these kinds of unusual behaviours of apps, as well as increase transparency.
'It's worth pointing out too that a lot of this information seems to be used for advertising rather than malicious purposes (though it obviously depends on your definition of malicious).
