This new paper shows the massive failure of GDPR/e-Privacy enforcement on apps:

* 81,4% of Android apps contacted a tracking domain during start (before consent)
* 86.1% of Android apps could access the AdId
* Children apps have an increased prevalence of sharing the Ad-ID than average

And: No clear winner between iOS and Android regarding privacy

@rufposten Perhaps it's not the failure of GDPR so much as the failure of *enforcement* of GDPR?
