+ - FTC Settles Charges Over Unfair Android App Settin->

Submitted by Trailrunner7
Trailrunner7 (1100399) writes "In a landmark move, the Federal Trade Commission has settled charges it brought against the maker of a P2P file-sharing application that the commission alleged included unfair default settings that caused users to unknowingly share photos, videos and other personal data. The settlement with FrostWire LLC may well be an indication that the federal government is going to be taking a hard look at the way developers set up their apps and what users know about the data they collect and share."
