Flo fertility tracker app settles FTC data-abuse allegations

Thursday, January 14, 2021


The developer of the Flo period and fertility-tracking app used by more than 100 million women has settled Federal Trade Commission allegations that the company shared the health information of users with outside data analytics providers after promising that such information would be kept private.

The proposed settlement requires Flo Health, Inc. to, among other things, obtain an independent review of its privacy practices and get app users’ consent before sharing their health information. 

Flo must notify affected users about the disclosure of their personal information and instruct any third party that received users’ health information to destroy that data.
