This request is not new, as the Big Tech revealed earlier in May that developers must declare their safety information within a deadline between October and April.
However, Google decided this week to provide more details on the kind of data developers need to provide for the new mandatory policy.
The app policies will allow users to view safety and privacy guidelines before downloading the app, which will let them understand how their data is collected, protected, and used in advance.
The safety section on the Play Store will require app developers to disclose their security practices, including information on data encryption, whether an app follows Google’s families policy, and whether users will have a choice to share data.
The safety section is currently due to start appearing in app descriptions in the first quarter of 2022.
Google in a blog post disclosed screenshots of what the safety section might look like. Yet, the company said that the design is subject to change.
There’s also a “see details” option to get more specifics on what collected data is used for, and whether the collection is essential for using the app.
