Google to remove apps which don’t follow privacy standards.
It wasn’t too long ago that a major selling factor of a phone operating system was how many apps were available to it. BlackBerry users know this fact all too well. Google may soon be deleting millions of apps from the Google Play Store. Privacy minded BlackBerry users should be very happy about this news.
Google is sending notices to android developers globally, informing them that they will be limiting visibility, and even removing apps from the Google Play Store which violate Google’s User Data Policy.
And that is a good thing. It is important that users should be informed of what these apps are doing with their information, and this a great step by Google being taken in the right direction.
