Do Americans know how much of their data is being collected and possibly shared by mobile apps? It appears not. 

Secure Data Recovery conducted a study to find out which apps Americans trust, and who cares at all. Key findings from the report include:

  • More Android users (58%) described themselves as “very conscientious” about app use than iOS users (44%).
  • 52% of iOS users say they’ve “given up” worrying about data collection vs only 38% of Android.
  • Top apps Americans have low concern for but have high data capture: YouYube, Target, Gmail, Google Maps.
  • Women’s health apps are the least trusted in America. 
  • If companies paid them for it, 66% would be more open to data collection.
