Absolutely none at all. While there is ignorance and lack of proper privacy laws, this can only get worse.

Period- and pregnancy-tracking apps such as Ovia have climbed in popularity as fun, friendly companions for the daunting uncertainties of childbirth, and many expectant women check in daily to see, for instance, how their unborn baby's size compares to different fruits or Parisian desserts.
It's just a step up from GPS tracking, fitbits & co.
People are being desensitised to how intimate the stuff they're constantly handing over to "The Cloud" actually is.
Yes, the app developers will be blamed and make some empty promises.
people will continue to fight for more privacy - more privacy in handing your whole lives' details over to faceless businesses.
:facepalm:
