The Pandora music app for BlackBerry, Android and iOS seems to be leaking information, specifically from the Android app, regarding your birth date, gender, Android ID and GPS location to third party ad servers. This comes by analysis from Veracode, a private firm. Veracode claims that this information could easily be paired with online information about you to give them other narrowed down specifics on where you work, where you live, and who you associate with.

This violation of personal information sharing is not something that many take lightly, and as such, Pandora has not made any comments regarding these claims. If you’d like to know more about these findings, you can here at Veracode. Also, if you’re totally freaked out by this, it may be suggested that you simply uninstall the app.
