Here are some:
Security Flaw Found in Dolphin Browser for Android - eSecurity Planet

Dolphin HD browser snared in security breach | Privacy Inc. - CNET News

etc.

presumably fixed in later version, but perhaps unfixed later or sent to somewhere other than en.mywebzines.com.

Another privacy implication is that MoboTap was also notified which files you're using Dolphin HD to browse even on your computer. A post on AndroidPolice.com suggested one way to fix the problem would be to block connections to the MoboTap-operated Web site, en.mywebzines.com.
I'm no security expert and I am sure Dolphin is not the only browser or app that mines data. So this is only worth what it is worth. Your mileage may vary.

If I recall there's a feature you can disable in Dolphin so it doesn't send out anonymous data. I believe in Settings or Privacy.
Could not find that option.

Installed dolphin to check and in its help/privacy is a long text few would read which in summary says if you don't agree with our policy please don't download it. So I un installed it.
