China on Thursday ordered mobile app stores to remove 106 apps including social media platform Douban, karaoke app Changba, and phone reseller Aihuishou in the country’s last crackdown on data violations. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said in a statement that the apps failed to fix issues such as collecting too much personal data at high frequencies, and misleading users into downloading their apps. The latest app clean-up campaign is part of a broader crackdown on data abuse in China. [Reuters]
