Appthority Releases Summer 2013 App Reputation Report

Richard Harris Richard Harris in iOS Tuesday, August 6, 2013

Appthority’s Summer 2013 App Reputation Report has been published, taking a behind the scenes look at how apps actually work as they relate to the consumer. The biggest finding of the study is the finding that 83% of the apps had some type of security risk or privacy issues.

Appthority conducted the study of 400 mainstream iOS and Android free and paid apps. Appthority examined the apps for specific performance tendencies utilizing the company’s App Risk Management Service.

Surprisingly, the report indicates that iOS apps show more risky behaviors than Android apps, with 91% of iOS apps exhibiting risky behavior as compared to 80% of Android apps. The company also discovered several popular iOS apps that still access a users unique device identifier (UDID), even though Apple does not allow this method of tracking iOS users.
