Xavier Becerra: ” Today’s settlement is a wake up call not just for Glow, but for every app maker that handles sensitive private data.”
Landmark settlement against GlowHQ – a fertility app that had serious privacy and security failures that risked exposing millions of women’s medical information.
As part of the settlement, Glow will be required to:
- incorporate privacy and security design principles into its mobile apps,
- get consent from users before sharing private information,
- and allow users to revoke previously granted consent.
