Tracking Code in Opera App and Privacy Policy

  • According to Exodus-Privacy Report *1 the Opera for Android App contains tracking code for ten (10!) Trackers. Specifically these are:

    • AppsFlyer
    • Facebook Ads
    • Facebook Analytics
    • Facebook Login
    • Facebook Share
    • Flurry
    • Google Ads
    • Google Firebase Analytics
    • Inmobi
    • LeanPlum

    In your Privacy Policy for "Opera for Android" *2 you mention:

    • Google Location-Services
    • AppsFlyer
    • AppBoy
    • AdMarvel (which uses Facebook SDK)

    That leaves Flurry, Inmobi and LeanPlum totally unaccounted for in your privacy policy. Google Tracking seems to be more than just Location-Services and AdMarvel does not just add Facebook SDK, but specifically adds Facebook tracking code.
    I believe you should update your privacy policy accordingly.

    Personally, I was shocked to learn that Opera for Android contains so much tracking code from so many different companies, which all monitor the websites that I visit. I am now actively selecting apps based on privacy and protection of my personal data and I am afraid that I will have to look for a new web-browser. Very disappointed!
    Bye Bye Opera.
