Issue of Privacy with Google Play Store!



The issue of privacy is a sensitive topic on the internet. The Google application store, the Play Store, finds itself the center of attention after a ticket from a developer who explains to access personal information of users of its program. The download platform is indeed a bit too talkative on those who use it. Once a person download a paid application, some data would then be transmitted to the author. The Australian developer Dan Nolan noticed this detail through the administration console of the shop. With a simple click, you have access to the personal information of users of its application such as name, email address, or the location.

 Data by which, with your own admission, could enable him to "stalk and harass users who leave negative reviews are reimbursed or application." In fact, this information is needed particularly in the context of a refund application fee, which is why this data exchange is not about those that are free. The conditions of use of Google Play Store also indicate: "Google may need to provide your personal data, such as your name and e-mail to suppliers in order to process your transactions and / or Content you provide. Google has agreed with the suppliers they use the information in accordance with the rules of confidentiality. '
