Android developers will need to add iOS-like privacy information soon

Google will follow in the footsteps of Apple and is set to introduce privacy information requirements for developers that publish apps in its Play Store. The company said in a blog post that developers will need to state what data is collected and stored, such as location, contacts, name, email address, and types of files stored; how the data is used, such as whether it changes app functionality or personalisation; which security practices, such as encryption, the app uses; and if the app follows Google’s families policy.
