RATING
C

There was a constant stream of connections with trackers from Facebook, Google, and Appsflyer - none of which is relevant to identifying plants. That's a ton of data considering this is the #1 downloaded Education app on the App Store. Real life plant experts don't send your data to Facebook you when you ask them to identify a plant.

PictureThis's Privacy Rating is C. We found 4 different third-party trackers in the PictureThis app, and there were 249 attempted tracking connections detected during our test.
