A recent article on mobile apps being a privacy concern. Tracking and transmitting kids data without parental consent is widespread.

I mention it as this is something Nintendo could promote, if their 3DS and Switch does not also track and transmit data.

If it's connected to the internet, it's not private and it's not secure. I hope people are finally catching on to that.
