What's BAD Bews For Metaverse! Google Said:

Apps that are known for sharing tracking data with other parties should be wary, since Google has now revealed that Privacy Sandbox will be coming to Android from Chrome.

The Privacy Sandbox, which was created to minimize monitoring and give consumers a little more privacy, is still in development, and this applies to both the online version and the planned Android endeavor. Rather than accepting the risk of making changes without consulting app developers, Google is encouraging them to participate in the privacy reform.

More privacy is always a good thing – it is a fact, not an opinion. Our information is extremely valuable in today’s world. Companies like Meta (previously Facebook) store and share a lot of user data, including surfing habits, shopping trends, and other helpful information (and may use it maliciously). When this information is shared, it can be used to personalize advertisements for customers. 

Given that over 90% of Android apps are free to download but contain advertisements, they are a potent tool and a significant source of revenue. Unfortunately for users, once browsing data is published, it is forever public.

While sharing user data is inconvenient for those who are affected, it provides an income stream for app developers. To make a profit, an app that is free to download usually relies on advertising revenue. 

While digital behemoths like Meta can afford to lose, changes to data tracking policies can have a significant impact on small developers. Google appears to be taking a cautious approach to these developments. Is this a positive or negative thing?

Google is inviting app devs to collaborate

Google takes a rather moderate approach in their statement about Privacy Sandbox for Android, emphasizing the need to adopt digital advertising to safeguard user privacy. It’s evident that Google isn’t seeking to totally eliminate advertising from the equation. Inviting developers to assist in the development of new policies should aid the corporation in avoiding harming indie developers.

“We recognize that other platforms have taken a different approach to ad privacy, prohibiting developers’ and advertisers’ use of existing technologies. We feel that such techniques can be unproductive and lead to worse consequences for user privacy and developer businesses if they are not preceded by a privacy-preserving alternative path “In a statement, Google stated.

Google outlined a few of the first measures it expects to take on its Android Developer page in order to accomplish this. The company appears to aim to develop new technologies that protects user privacy while also allowing free app creators to benefit. The company’s inclusion of alternative platforms, 

in addition to the Privacy Sandbox specifications supplied for developers, is quite telling. Apple recently through a similar shift, with disastrous repercussions for indie software developers.
