(WTVR) — According to the mobile security firm “LookOut,” more and more apps may be accessing your personal information.

This includes everything from your phone number, your email and even your name.

LookOut blames it on the rising number of apps that use ads for revenue. The company suggests downloading a security app or reading more closely to terms of service agreements.
