Google follows Apple’s approach, informing users about which application is tracking which data

Google follows Apple's approach, informing users about which application is tracking which data

The Google Play Store is updating its guidelines in a similar way to Apple a few months ago. Earlier this year, Apple introduced its app tracking transparency feature, which forces developers to now obtain user consent before storing or transmitting their data and letting users know which apps they are collecting.

Google is now taking the same approach. According to Suzanne Frey (VP of Android Products, Security and Privacy), his new update will have a security section where all developers in the store must provide detailed information about their policies. Provide users with customer information. The newly updated section will be between app ratings and reviews and general app information and will contain all the important information about what data the company collects. application. It also mentioned how much you keep and whether to provide it to various third parties and what guidelines they follow.

In its announcement, Google alternately named the functional area as “safe area”, “data protection and data protection” and “application data protection and security”, so we are not sure which name it will have. And more.
That is, although it is not the case, the user can access the additional information by clicking on the additional information, which will display another menu.

This section focuses on the information that the application needs on their phone, such as Their location or contact information. , Authorization, also granted by the user, also displays all the data about yourself that the user can enter when setting up the application profile. Although most people are not satisfied with the update, Google has also considered the ideas of the developers to develop this new feature.

Why? This is because the developer collects user data and sends it to a third party, which makes it easier to understand user preferences and use their ads in the future. As a result, developers have gained a lot of income. However, although Apple has released this new feature, the introduction of Google will also make developers lose some resources.

However, such updates and security measures are very important because after all, it is user data and they have the right to know where they are going, and if they disagree, they can delete this application. The app will seek Apple’s consent for data collection, but it has not yet been mentioned. However, the update will not be available on Google until April 2022, so developers have enough time to make the necessary changes in the Play Store. In addition, starting in October this year, Developer Analysis will provide an overview to clearly understand what changes they need to make.
