Have you purchased an app on your Android mobile recently? If so, your personal information—full name, zip code, and email address—may currently be in the hands of the third party developer who created that new app you love so much.

Australian app developer Dan Nolan recently posted on his blog that he, without realizing, had access to everyone’s personal information who had purchased his app through Google Play. Google Play, formerly known as the Android Market, is the main platform for purchasing apps on Android mobile and is maintained by Google.

And this treasure trove of personal information that Nolan stumbled upon isn’t simply a glitch in the system, nor is it new. In fact, all consumers who purchase apps on Google Play have their personal information sent to the app’s developer without their consent (no information is sent when downloading free apps). App developers get your email address, your suburb, and often your full name. 

Googles like that friend everyone has who can't keep any secrets and drives down the road sniffing your wifi. Eventually you just don't tell that friend anything.
