A number of European mobile phone companies have signed up to new privacy guidelines published by the GSMA.
The GSMA hope that the new guidelines will help make issues relating to privacy more transparent for individuals. This will mean users will have a better understanding of how their data will be handled in the future. Several companies have already started implementing the guidelines in the apps they develop.
Recently it was revealed that Twitter had copied many of its users address books, through its Smartphone app.
