RBC recieves complaints about mobile app privacy

The Royal Bank of Canada has recently released an update to their mobile banking app that required access to users’ GPS location, phone memory, and call logs/contacts.  The update has made many users upset due to the idea that RBC could sell the information received from the app.  This would be an unnecessary amount of information for the app, but RBC has stated it is “in order to provide you with the best mobile banking experience possible,”.  This goes to show how users care about their privacy, and asking for permissions to personal information can lose the trust of those users.
