Why update Google Play's Data safety section for your app?

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Thursday 2 March 2023

In 2021, Google announced additional details for the Data safety section on Google Play. Developers are now required to tell Google about their apps' privacy and security practices by completing a form in Play Console. This information will be shown on your app's Store Listing to help Google Play users understand how your app collects and shares user data before they download.
By 20 July 2022, all developers must declare how they collect and handle user data for the apps that they publish on Google Play and provide details about how they protect this data through security practices. 

By not following these guidelines, you will find yourself at risk of having your app removed from the Play Store.

Note: if you have subscribed to the GoodBarber Takes Care service, no worries. If you receive this type of email, simply open a ticket with our support team who will handle this for you
