Illegal data collection. Manipulating children into in-app purchases. Ads for gambling and alcohol. Modeling harmful behavior like cleaning your eyes with sharp objects.
These are just some of the problems with apps in the Family section of the Google Play Store that we document in a complaint to the FTC.
