US Presidential election apps are reportedly full of security flaws – TechRadar

The 2020 US Presidential election is fast approaching and both candidates are currently using mobile apps as a means to raise funds and reach out to potential voters. However, new research from The App Analyst has revealed that both apps contain security flaws and privacy issues that could leave voters at risk.

The Vote Joe app used by the Biden 2020 Presidential campaign was found to be leaking potentially sensitive information about voters including their political affiliations and past voting choices. Additionally, the campaign’s iOS app failed to enforce email verification which means that non-US citizens could have signed up and accessed its data.
