Google to clamp down on Android app snooping

The new Unwanted Software Policy from Google is actively working cut down on unwanted and malicious mobile behaviour in the Android ecosystem. Further, if the apps save information that is not necessary they are needed to explain users how the data is going to be used.

Once the user has installed the app on their Android device, the app will need to prompt a privacy policy that explicitly mentions what kind of data it procures from the user. If an app continues to stray from the policy, users are likely to see its Safe Browsing full-page warnings, which will probably drive users away from the offending software.

Google has expanded enforcement of its unwanted software policy on Android devices, as part of what it says is an effort to protect users from deceptive and overly intrusive apps. For instance, if an application requires sending analytics, it can't transmit information unrelated to the app unless it discloses the reason and gets permission from the user. Google's help centre. Advice on making remedial actions will be available inside the facility. To be able to transmit that data, the user must be shown a prominent disclosure and give affirmative consent. Apart from highlighting the consumption, Datally will also suggest you the ways to bring down that consumption based on your usage and activity.

Google notes that two common violations are when an app doesn't treat a user's installed apps as personal or sensitive user data and when an app doesn't treat the user's phone or contact book as personal data. In case app developers fail to comply, Google will take it upon itself to warn users. Interestingly, it does not matter whether apps are featured in Google Play or they come via other marketplaces.
