Recently Wal-Mart and Walgreens have both been noted to have security vulnerabilities connected to their mobile applications. Following recent revelations about the insufficient security of mobile apps from other major corporations, such as Target, Neiman Marcus, and Starbucks, it is clear that big company names are still struggling to iron out flaws in their mobile apps.
We recently put the Wal-Mart and Walgreens apps through our mobile app reputation analysis via the Appthority Service and found their ratings to be the following:
- The Walmart iOS app earned an app reputation score of 23 out of a possible 100 points.
- The Walgreens app earned an app reputation score of 19 out of a possible 100 points.
These findings are another reminder that big companies must prioritize and invest further in security and privacy when it comes to rolling out their mobile apps.
