Google’s Privacy Labels Will Be Required By April 2022

Android developers will be required to provide a privacy label for their apps by April 2022, bringing a new level of transparency to the platform.

Apple rocked the mobile development world when it required app developers to disclose what information they gathered and tracked from their users. Meanwhile, Android users have had no comparable feature, leaving them in the dark about what and how much of their data is being collected by apps.

Google is taking steps to address that, signaling in May it intended to bring its own version of privacy labels to the Play Store. According to CNET, those labels will be required by April 2022.

The announcement is good news for Android users who are interested in protecting their privacy.
