  • A study of just under a million apps by Oxford University researchers found that big tech companies can hoover up enormous amounts of data from third-party apps.
  • The study found that just under 90% of the apps analysed could send data to companies owned by Google's parent company Alphabet.
  • News apps and those aimed at children were found to be particularly tracker-heavy.
  • Google disputed the methodology used by the Oxford researchers.
