Google takes privacy seriously, this is nothing that should come as a surprise to users of Google services as Google makes a point to highlight the many different changes or measure they take to keep customer and user data safe and sound. In a recent series of changes set to take place for the Chrome browser, more specifically to Chrome’s user data policy, Google will now be cracking down on violations of that policy within the Chrome web store. What this means for users is that it should result in a more secure web store and in turn more secure apps installed on personal computers.
What this means for developers is that now, under the new policy guidelines, they’ll have to be more transparent about how their web store apps manage the data of users. Google already gives some privacy control to users, but they also want to make sure that web store developers are following along with the same privacy measures that Google themselves take so the web store is safer for everyone. Alongside the new open transparency over user data is handled, the new user data policy will also require web store developers to display their privacy practices.
