AbstractWe perform the first post EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) usability study of privacy policies for mobile apps. For our analysis, we collect a dataset of historical (prior to GDPR implementation in May 2018) and contemporary privacy policies in different categories. In contrast to the common belief, that after the GDPR most of the privacy policies are easier to understand, our analysis shows that this is not so.
