The Appthority® App Report for February 2013 provides an overview of the security risks behind 100 free iOS and Android apps. Appthority examined the differences between the Android and iOS app ecosystems; compared app behaviors across five popular app categories (business, education, entertainment, finance, games); and looked at the developers behind these apps.
The vast majority of free apps send and receive data to outside parties without encryption.
96% of total apps share data with advertising networks and/or analytics companies.
79% of the top 50 free iOS and Android apps are associated with risky behaviors or privacy issues. Overall, iOS apps exhibited more risky behaviors than Android apps.
Entertainment apps were the worst offenders out of the top five categories, with the highest number of apps that track for location and share data with advertising networks and/or analytics companies.
While 14% of iOS apps had access to a user’s calendar, none of the Android apps had similar access.
More than half of the total apps track for location by accessing the device GPS or using other location tracking methods.
More than 80% of apps across categories come from different unique, individual developers.
