Google updated the app privacy information for its email service, Gmail, on the App Store. This marks the second major app to receive an update on App Privacy labels, after YouTube.
The privacy labels on the app reveal that the app may collect user information such as their contacts, search history, and also their location data for analytics purpose. This isn’t a big surprise for users as Google has been backlashed for this issue several times.
Although App Privacy labels have been added to Gmail, it has been two months since the company released an update to the Gmail app. The change appears to be done server side. As we saw Gmail App Privacy labels getting updated, we can expect to see the same change for other Google apps soon in the future.
Last year, Apple announced that all app developers need to add privacy labels to their apps. This would help users know how much of their data is being collected and how it’s being used. The social media giant Facebook seemed unhappy with this decision and accused Apple of harming the business of small developers.
