The app world is coming for your kids. Use Family Share for iOS or the Google Play Family Library for Android to require parental permission before a child can download an app.

A number of 281 apps have collected contact or location data without asking for a parent's permission. It was mainly aimed to determine if Google and the app creators were violating the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), a federal law that restricts the extent of data collection on people under the age of 13.

A new study has revealed that thousands of Android apps are improperly tracking and sharing data on children.

To help parents with assessing the apps their kids use on their phones, researchers made the results of their analysis for each of the 5,855 child-directed Android app available on AppCensus, a website that lists privacy assessments for Android applications. Finally, regulators can use it to detect deceptive and suspicious activities in the marketplace as part of investigations.

According to the researchers, numerous apps might be breaching the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act in the United States, which is supposed to regulate how mobile apps, games and websites are allowed to collect and process personal information from children under the age of 13. "The Brick Matcher app is a great tool to find the ideal match for existing brickwork on refurb projects or to ensure a new build "blends in" with surrounding properties, adding kerb appeal and value".

Bryce Harper: Crushes broken-bat homer in Monday's win
Harper hit his major league-high eighth homer, and his 33 1/2-inch (85 cm), 31 1/2-ounce (950 grams) Marucci bat paid the price. The Washington Nationals slugger broke his bat in two pieces while still scoring a home run against the New York Mets .

According to the mobile app industry, on April 15, the FTC is now conducting a survey of Korean mobile game developers and distributorson fair trade on mobile game distribution platforms.

Even though Google has taken steps to enforce COPPA compliance, the researchers say they have found lack of enforcement.

To get understand the scope of the problem, the team of computer scientists created software that runs each of 5,855 popular children's apps for ten minutes, interacting with each app as a typical person might, and keeping track of all of the data that was transmitted or stored in the process.

The study comes a week after a group of privacy and children's advocacy groups, including the CCFC, filed an FTC complaint against YouTube, arguing that Google's video platform was illegally collecting personal data from children.
