That is according to a study released by the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) Wednesday, July 11, in advance of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)-hosted stakeholder meeting in Washington on July 12 on enforcing an Obama Administration-backed privacy Bill of Rights. It is the first in a series of meetings, with Thursday's focusing on apps and mobile privacy.
According to the study, the percentage of free apps with privacy policies doubled from 40% in a December 2011 study to 84% as of June on the iOS App Store platform, and paid apps with privacy policies were up slightly from 60% to 64%.
According to FPF, "almost all" leading apps that collect location information include privacy policies.
