Google plans to create a new security section in its mobile app store, which will allow smartphone users to see the data that developers collect about them.

The company, which is owned by “Alphabet”, said through a blog that the new section will give Android users the ability to access additional information related to privacy and security.

“Google” stated that developers of “Android” applications will be granted until the second quarter of 2022 to announce this information, indicating that users will begin to see the new section in “Google Play” during the first quarter of next year.

The security section of Google Play also informs users whether the app encrypts data, whether it follows Google’s policies for families and children, and the user’s ability to delete data if apps are uninstalled.
