In an app-crazy world, what developers should know about privacy and consent

The recent introduction of the Application Privacy, Protection and Security (APPS) Act of 2013 by Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) has many implications for developers, especially because it would mandate greater transparency around the way developers collect, use and store personal information about their customers. Among other things, the APPS Act would require developers to ensure apps have "consented terms and conditions, reasonable data security of collected data, and users with control to cease data collection by opting out of the service or deleting the user's personal data to the greatest extent possible." FierceDeveloper looks at the implications of the bill. Special Report
