Google makes it mandatory for Chrome Apps to tell Users what Data they collect

April 19, 2016 – 5:09 PM

Around 40 percent of all Google Chrome users have some kind of browser extensions, plugins or add-ons installed, but how safe are they?

The company plans to enforce developers starting this summer, to “ensure transparent use of the data in a way that is consistent with the wishes and expectations of users.”

Google is making its Chrome Web Store safer for its users by forcing developers to disclose how they handle customers’ data.

Google’s new User Data Policy will now force app developers, who use the Chrome Web Store to distribute their products, to be more transparent about their data collection practices.

In other words, the company wants its Chrome users to know what’s happening when they use third-party apps and services that rely on its browser.
