Google Play has launched a privacy nutrition labels programme to inform mobile users about data collection practices by app developers. The scheme is similar to the one Apple rolled out in December 2020, in which Google delayed updating its own apps for several months. The Google Play Data safety section includes details on the types of data being collected, third-party data sharing, security measures and more. Developers must finalise their disclosures by 20 July as Google will gradually roll out its programme. Meanwhile, The Verge reports Google has unveiled its first developer preview of Privacy Sandbox on Android as the company's ad-tracking overhaul continues.
