    Tracker apps --be careful what you use

    https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/20/1...le-advertising

    Though most of the easily-found depression or smoking cessation apps in the Android and iOS stores share data, only a fraction of them actually disclose this. The findings add to a string of worrying revelations about what apps are doing with the health information we entrust to them. For instance, a Wall Street Journal investigation recently revealed the period tracking app Flo shared users’ period dates and pregnancy plans with Facebook. And previous studies have reported health apps with security flaws or that shared data with advertisers and analytics companies.
    Outrageous, yes? So, if you've been tracking your cycle and wondered why you got those oddly timed targeted ads on Facebook, this could be why.

    Just another reminder that "free" usually has some kind of strings attached.
