FTC issues mobile privacy policy guidelines

Quote:
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued a new set of guidelines in order to try and secure user privacy in a move that could affect companies including Apple and Microsoft.

The FTC's guidelines -- although currently non-binding -- are directed at firms that develop mobile platforms and applications. Published on Friday, the report includes a number of recommendations for mobile platform developers and providers, further highlighting the FTC's focus on trying to secure user privacy as more people in the U.S. turn to smartphones and tablets.

Head in the right direction but most people I know with cell phones just poke the phone and want something to happen. They don't know how it happens and don't want to know. They would not want their phone to questions their intentions or reasoning. Just do it. They have never heard of or thought of phone security and don't want to. They download app's and never give a thought of infections. I don't think they every will.

Same thing with PC and Mac users, history is doomed to repeat itself here.
