Your kids could be losing their personal information through their cell phones.
A new report from the Federal Trade Commission says the easy access to apps on smartphones could put them at risk.
The report says parents are in the dark about what personal information is being collected and how companies are using it.
It adds that mobile app companies should give parents basic easy-to-understand information so that parents can choose which apps to let their kids have.
The report also says developers should disclose whether their apps connect with social media.
Mobile apps can automatically capture smartphone information like a person's location, phone number, call logs and contacts.
