Doctoral student Konrad Kollnig has had a paper published in Internet Policy Review, an influential open-access journal for internet regulation.
The paper, ‘Before and after GDPR: tracking in mobile apps’ looked at 2 million Android apps, 1 million from before and 1 million from after
the GDPR was introduced. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information from individuals in the European Union (EU) and the UK. The researchers found that tracking, a common privacy threat in mobile apps, continues to be widespread. Google and Facebook continue to dominate such tracking.
