Apple to developers: change your app, or else

by Volker Weber

Apple is telling app developers to remove or properly disclose their use of analytics code that allows them to record how a user interacts with their iPhone apps – or face removal from the app store, TechCrunch can confirm.

In an email, an Apple spokesperson said: “Protecting user privacy is paramount in the Apple ecosystem. Our App Store Review Guidelines require that apps request explicit user consent and provide a clear visual indication when recording, logging, or otherwise making a record of user activity.”

Your move, Google. Glassbox is also available for Android.

Sehr schön, dass Apple da so schnell reagiert hat.

So schön zynisch. :)

Its ironic that this is reported by Techcrunch which is part of Oath.

I have not yet been able to find a way to prevent my data being sent to the "Foundational" partners, including Facebook and Amazon. Just try to manage your preferences to prevent data like your search history being sent to those companies.

Perhaps I am missing something. In most companies, there is the option to accept "operational" cookies and so on, but not for Oath.

There is a simple answer for me, I do not read those sites.
