The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on Friday announced Path has agreed to settle charges that it deceived users in its iOS app by collecting personal information from their mobile device address books without their knowledge and consent. The settlement requires the mobile company to establish a comprehensive privacy program, to obtain independent privacy assessments every other year for the next 20 years, and to pay $800,000 fee. The fine is for illegally collecting personal information from children without their parents’ consent.
