    DescriptionAustralian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) member newsletter entry as follows:

    New app to protect children’s privacy online - ACCM has launched a new website for parents where they can check out apps their children want to play, and see what personal data is being gathered and who's getting it. The information in these privacy checks can help parents decide whether or not they are happy for their child to use a particular app. The resources now available include a regularly updated list of top 50 Android apps played by children in Australia that have had AppCensus privacy checks. These identify each app’s data collection activity. These resources incorporate research conducted at Macquarie University.
