Data safety section to be added in Google Play Store by 2022

Before users begin viewing the Data safety section in the Play Store starting February 2022, developers can review, fill out and submit Google’s new form by visiting the App Content section in the Play Console

To help Android smartphone users better protect their personal data, Google has announced that it will add a new data safety section for apps in Google Play Store in 2022.

Before users install a new app on their device, the new data safety section will help developers show potential users of their apps in a transparent manner that they collect data to share and protect user data.

The section, at a glance highlights what data an app collects and shares, as well as whether the data is encrypted in transit, may be deleted, adheres to family policy, or has gone through independent review.

9to5Google reports that Google is releasing a new data safety form in the Google Play Console. Before users begin viewing the Data safety section in the Play Store starting February 2022, developers can review, fill out and submit Google’s new form by visiting the App Content section in the Play Console.

If a developer’s information about their apps is approved, their store listing will automatically be updated with their data safety information. Google is targeting April 2022 when “the data safety section of all your apps must be approved”.

However, users will see “No information available” in the Play Store listing of the app if no information is submitted or it is rejected. This may prompt privacy-conscious users to avoid downloading an app in the first place, which could hurt a developer’s sales or advertising revenue.
