One interesting story this week is an issue related to user data harvesting on Android phones

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/android-apps-with-45-million-installs-used-data-harvesting-sdk/ (Links to an external site.) – Apparently tens of millions of affected devices.

Contrast the Google-controlled Android platform and how this can happen against the user privacy restrictions imposed by Apple. Do you think that Android should go the same way?

What kind of harvesting apps are out there in the wild? Are there any mainstream consumers of this kind of data (i.e. apps that are likely to be widely used?)
