The Google Play Store has serious privacy issues for children’s Android apps

Everyone deserves a bit of online privacy, but it is safe to say that children’s privacy has received more attention. If you are not careful, the Internet may be a relatively dangerous place for children. This is the reason for the app store. Generally speaking, children should pay special attention to apps, because this can ultimately reduce the impact of any type of apps used by any child on him.

Possibility of harm to privacy. Most of the privacy agreements introduced to protect online children come from COPPA, the “Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.” Every application available in the Google Play store must comply with these rules and regulations. If it was designed for audiences under 13, but unfortunately, Google is really not good enough to ensure that non-compliant applications prevent its platform from reaching high-risk children around the world.

This is because about 20% of the top 500 kids’ apps on the Google Play store violate this privacy policy to some extent. This discovery was discovered by Comparitech, and analysis showed that data breaches mainly occurred in the form of data mining, which is not entirely legal, because the types of data that application developers can collect are strictly limited. The reasons for the children are obvious.

What is really scary about this finding is that applications that receive too much data from a child audience have been downloaded by a total of nearly 500 million independent users, so the possibility of these data being misused is very high, and it really needs to be addressed.

Google has actually guaranteed that it will certainly not produce extra monitoring treatments for its own Chrome browser's FLoC, personal privacy sandbox for advertisements guiding

Google has a responsibility to protect daily use People’s rights on its platform, if the tech giant fails to take steps to reduce the number of violations of children’s privacy laws, people may feel that your store is not safe enough to use. The application comes first.

Strict compliance with COPPA rules can help children avoid many dangers associated with downloading apps and more. However, at the same time, parents need to play a more active role in deciding which apps they can and cannot use.
