Fitness and weight loss apps are hugely popular, but do they fall short when it comes to your sensitive information? Our investigation reveals that from sleeping habits to fitness goals, to social media activity and IP addresses, these apps often collect and share your personal information.

In this blog, we'll cover:

  1. What information is collected and shared by the most popular weight loss apps.
  2. How you can take action to stop your sensitive information being shared.

Please note that when we list the data that each company collects from their users, it doesn't necessarily mean that they are sharing all of it with advertisers. Instead they may only be sharing parts of it, but a full list allows you to see how much data would be accessed in a data breach or cyber attack.
