Consumers feel like they have little control over data collected on them. Users of #reprohealth apps have reason to be wary. @ConsumerReports tested 5 apps and found shortcomings in the way all handle the sensitive user data they collect.
Repro health apps are offered as an empowerment tool for consumers eager for power and agency over their health. Yet at the same time, many health apps do not have proper privacy standards in place, which too often results in sensitive health data falling into the wrong hands.
