Apple recently declared that all the apps on its App Store will have to have privacy policies. All app developers will now have to inculcate the policy in their apps, which was first only mandatory for the apps which were subscription based.
Data and privacy policies and their importance came into the limelight after the Facebook – Cambridge major data breach scandal in March. Data from 87 million Facebook users were inappropriately obtained by way of Facebook apps. Through this implementation, Apple would basically protect themselves from situations like Zuckerberg had to face.
This would come into effect from October 3, 2018.
