January 14, 2021
Flo Health has settled claims with the Federal Trade Commission that it shared users' health information with outside data analytics providers. The startup, which provides an app for tracking fertility and menstrual cycles, had promised users that their health information would be kept private. But the FTC alleged that Flo shared sensitive data with third parties, including Facebook and Google's analytics divisions. The company is backed by investors including Mangrove Capital and Flint Capital.
