The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), along with several organizations, launched the Coalition Against Stalkerware.

* The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), along with several organizations, launched the Coalition Against Stalkerware "to unite and mobilize security software companies and advocates for domestic abuse victims in actions to combat and shut down malicious stalkerware apps." The coalition will aim to establish best practices for ethical software development, as well as bring attention to stalkerware apps and how they work so that people can identify them and remove them from their phones. It strives to provide help for victims--such as by forming partnerships with law enforcement and lawmakers to uphold protections--and advocate for antivirus makers to build stalkerware detection into their products.
