Google has warned Android developers to give users better warnings about their apps’ data collection behaviours, or it will flag their failings.
Last Friday, the company announced revisions to Safe Browsing rules and “expanded enforcement of Google’s Unwanted Software Policy”.
If developers don’t comply within 60 days, Google said, it will warn users via Google Play Protect “or on webpages that lead to these apps”.

“Google Safe Browsing will show warnings on apps and on websites leading to apps that collect a user’s personal data without their consent”, the announcement said.
If an app handles either personal data (phone number, e-mail) or device data (such as IMEI number), developers will have to both prompt the user, and include a privacy policy in the app.
“Additionally, if an app collects and transmits personal data unrelated to the functionality of the app then, prior to collection and transmission, the app must prominently highlight how the user data will be used and have the user provide affirmative consent for such use,” the announcement said.
Google also warned developers against underhanded behaviour in crash reports: “the list of installed packages unrelated to the app may not be transmitted from the device without prominent disclosure and affirmative consent.” ®

有后门的软件很多啊,开发者弄些不被人知的鬼动作,要怕就用开源,省钱又放心,只是使用开源系统需要懂些基本的技术。
移动设备也更容易连接到其它非安全的网络中,进而增加被攻击和渗透的可能性。
