Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) says Apple and Google have agreed to meet with him to discuss loopholes found on smartphones that allow apps developers access to users' personal information, The New York Times reports. Schumer said, "We asked them if they could find a way on their own to prevent apps from having access to private info...They were friendly and open to the idea that this ought to be changed." Schumer added that he is "optimistic that we can get this changed without any regulation...If it's not changed, then we'll look to the FTC, and if that doesn't work, then we'll look at legislative approach."
