  • Google has finally made the new data safety section in Google Play available starting today.
  • The new section provides more transparency about what apps are doing with your data.
  • It requires developers to provide information on why their apps are collecting data and whether these apps are shared with third parties.

Google has announced that a new data safety section will start showing up in the Play Store app listings today, several months after it first demonstrated the new feature.

The new section, which was shown off in May of last year, aims to inform users about an app’s data collection and handling practices. It requires developers to declare what type of data their apps collect and for what purpose.
