Earlier this week, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced a settlement with mobile app developer W3 Innovations, LLC. (W3) and its president, Justin Maples, over alleged children’s privacy violations. The FTC action was intended to send a message to the mobile app market that it will be closely monitoring the industry for business practices that violate consumer protection law, including privacy restrictions.
