This new paper shows the massive failure of GDPR/e-Privacy enforcement on apps:
* 81,4% of Android apps contacted a tracking domain during start (before consent)
* 86.1% of Android apps could access the AdId
* Children apps have an increased prevalence of sharing the Ad-ID than average
And: No clear winner between iOS and Android regarding privacy
@rufposten I think it’d be fair to mention that this study was conducted _before_ Apple started enforcing their opt-in policy concerning tracking. And I’m no Apple apologist by any means, but judging from the ad industry’s response .. it works.
