iOS Review on May 29, 2020
This app is owned by IBM, yet still uses invasive tracking and ads from many third-party sources. There are way too many trackers in this app for a simple weather app.
Weather's Privacy Rating is D. We found 12 different third-party trackers in the Weather app, and there were 176 attempted tracking connections detected during our test.
Blocked tracking attempts.
How was tracker testing done?
Tested using Lockdown v0.3.9
What was done during the test?
How many tracking attempts each time the app is opened?
Did user give consent to tracking before tracking started?
