Google had retreat its steps on a recent change that removed the app permissions list from the Google Play Store for Android from the web as well as Mobile App. Google had replaced that information with its Data Safety section.
The Play Store, all of sudden remove the permission list and app transparency of data usage. The Company clearly stated that- developers were responsible for making complete and accurate declarations in the listing of apps on Google Play.
According to reports-
“Privacy and transparency are core values in the Android community. We heard your feedback that you find the app permissions section in Google Play useful, and we have decided to reinstate it. The app permissions section will be back shortly. “
“The Data safety section provides users with a simplified view of how an app collects, shares, & secures data, but we also want to make app permissions information easily viewable for users to understand an app’s ability to access specific restricted data & actions too.”
The negative reaction of the community related to the directionless fear of data and loss oppressed Google to rethink the decision.
