According to the Attorney General of California, Kamala Harris, developers and distributors of mobile applications (Apps) must prominently post and comply with a privacy policy – just like websites and other commercial online venues.  Whereas California’s Online Privacy Protection Act (OPPA) expressly requires operators of websites to post privacy policies where those websites collect any personal information from California residents, Attorney General Harris has stated that OPPA applies to mobile App developers as well.

Given this development, App developers should immediately post legally compliant privacy policies and make them prominently available within their Apps, or they could find themselves facing regulatory action from the State of California.

Mobile App attorneys, App developer lawyers and those involved in the mobile App space should pay close attention.
