One state lawmaker wants to protect smartphone users from apps that might be collecting personal information.
Representative Marty Flynn says consumers need to know who's getting information from their phones. The Lackawanna County Democrat says his "Mobile Application Consumer Protection Act" would require a disclaimer in many apps.
Flynn says it would be written in layman's terms, which is both clear and concise, to state what information the application is accessing on a person’s phone. Flynn says app developers that fail to comply would be subject to a 25-dollar fine per instance.
Flynn is seeking co-sponsors for his legislation. More than one million smartphone apps are available, and more than 1,600 are released every day.
