(AP) — After last week’s Supreme Court taking down of Roe v. Wade, some period-tracking apps are trying to assure users that the data is safe. But, as in the case of most online activities, it’s important to read the apps’ privacy policies. Flo Health, parent company for one popular period tracking app says it will soon roll out an “Anonymous Mode.” It will strip personal identity from user accounts. The company also says it won’t sell personal data of its users. Another company, Clue, says it keeps user data on things like pregnancies and abortion “private and safe” by means of data encryption. Users are urged to take a close look at how data entered through such apps are used, especially if a company lets a third party have access to the information that’s submitted.
