Recently, Google and Apple have said that they will not release data about “location tracking services” to IT companies. The move is aimed at safeguarding the right to privacy of every individual.
Also, Apple has provided IT companies two months to execute the new verdict. According to Google, the companies concerned will have one month to apply. If important, the deadline will be increased for another month.
Several IT companies have already been active in expanding ‘contact tracing apps’ to avoid corona infections. They allege that if there is an infected person in the proximity, the client will get that data and warning over the phone.
There were also records that Google and Apple were being utilised for information on the location of smartphone users. But a few months ago, Google and Apple declared openly a “location tracking” service to the only healthcare app maker in each country to reduce supervision.
At the moment, more than 400 app builders around the planet collect data from more than 60 million clients, according to the news. If they do not apply for a new service within a month, their apps may be removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
