Google Plans Purge of Play Store apps Without Privacy Policies


Some Google Play Store apps which do not have the legal privacy policy to recognize those and also penalize Google have been sending notices to developers across the world for a functional plan.

According to a report cover by the Next Web, the CA.-based company the Mountain View proposes to "limit the visibility" of applications and it is not attached with present User Data Policies or you can detach the worst offender altogether.

As we seen every day so many Android apps that enlist in the Play Store and the important thing about this apps are maxed of them are appear to be careless. So when you notice this you should ignore this kind of application as many of these applications are just menial clones of popular software. The worst parts of these apps are, developers are the least concern about the user privacy.

Developers must be “transparent” as per Google’s User Data policy. We all share much personal and sensitive information though the app so developers should think seriously about the restriction on how to collect and handle user data or personal info.

It is not that only Google need the data of app policies are showed clearly as the users can read them before select but in both a deputed field in the Play Developer Console they must be posted and from the Play distributed app itself.

Like over HTTPS, delicate information must also be managed securely using modern cryptography.

A notice has been sent to Google Play developers as a warning from the company says, "violate Google's User Data policy regarding personal and sensitive information." Google is really concern about the privacy of their user.

As per notice we quote some statement here, "Google Play requires developers to provide a valid privacy policy when the app requests or handles sensitive user or device information. Your app requests sensitive permissions (for example, camera, microphone, accounts, contacts, or phone) or user data, but does not include a valid privacy policy."

The developers who undergo with such notice have time this year until March 15 to submit a link with valid privacy policy on their application Store Listing page, surely the app is including with this. To collect sensitive user data developers can remove the permission request alternatively.

The applications of the developers are at risk of being hidden from view in the App Store or removed altogether if they ignore the warning of the company.

Hope user will surely happy to find the fact that Google is very serious about the privacy issue as it comes to mobile application.
