- Excerpt from "California Attorney General Issues Privacy Practice Recommendations for Mobile Ecosystem":

California Attorney General Kamala Harris continues to position herself as one of the most active enforcers of consumer privacy rights. In January, the attorney general's office issued Privacy on the Go: Recommendations for the Mobile Ecosystem, a set of privacy best practices for the mobile space. The report is targeted primarily to developers of mobile applications (apps), but also includes recommendations for app platform providers, ad networks, operating system developers, and mobile carriers. The report acknowledges that the recommended privacy practices, in some respects, exceed what is required by the law, but are motivated by the goal of encouraging players in the mobile marketplace to consider privacy implications at the outset of the design process and to follow the Fair Information Practice Principles in their decision-making.
