PRIVACY
RATING
B

It's a wallpaper downloading app banking on people spending $10 to buy 1 animated wallpaper, but it's relatively honest. There are trackers, for sure, but this is one of the few apps that asks for user consent before loading any of them. It probably shouldn't ask for both read and write permission to users' photos - it only needs write permission. If we had plus/minus in our ratings, we'd give this app a B-.

Zedge Wallpapers's Privacy Rating is B. We found 4 different third-party trackers in the Zedge Wallpapers app, and there were 61 attempted tracking connections detected during our test.
