California: AG settlement with Fertility App company

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.
