The latest update to Path for Android update has now hit the Google Play Store, and this release will be of interest to those who previously had concerns over Path not properly securing personal data. As noted on the Path blog:
We take privacy and security seriously, and we believe your data deserves to be well-protected. That’s why, with the release of Path 2.1.1, we are enhancing our security by hashing user contact data so that it is anonymized. This means last names, phone numbers, email addresses, Twitter handles and Facebook IDs. We collect this data to connect you with those who are closest to you.
We hope our actions set a new standard in this field as we strive to serve you, our users, first. Thank you for your trust, and thank you for using Path.
With the privacy matters in the app now cleared up, the change log does also not various other bg fixes as well. That said; there was no mention of the multiple notification issue being fixed that some folks have been experiencing for the past little while now. Give it a go, the download link is beyond the break for you all and if you've had the notification bug before -- let us know in the comments if it is now fixed for ya.
