Google Mandates Android Apps to Offer Easy Account Deletion In-App and Online

Posted by in category: policy

Google is enacting a new data deletion policy for Android apps that allow account creation to also offer users with a setting to delete their accounts in an attempt to provide more transparency and control over their data.

“For apps that enable app account creation, developers will soon need to provide an option to initiate account and data deletion from within the app and online,” Bethel Otuteye, senior director of product management for Android App Safety, said.

“This web requirement, which you will link in your Data safety form, is especially important so that a user can request account and data deletion without having to reinstall an app.”
