Concerns have risen regarding the possibility of another flaw in the Google privacy layout. An issue has emerged in the event of a discovery by an Australian app developer. He apparently gained access to a list of personal data of users who had downloaded an app developed by him in Google Play.
Dan Nolan, app developer commented on his blog and described that he too had gained access to a bulk of personal data and information like mailing addresses and email ids of various users.
Nolan’s concerns gave rise to suspicion regarding something which had been incorporated as a part of Terms of Service (ToS) at Google from the very beginning
According to reports, the two app developers along with the consumers had agreed to share personal information by accepting the ToS.
A report also says that Nolan had written that if a user had bought the app on Google Play, then even after the order had been cancelled, he could have had access to the user’s email address, location and in certain cases the full name as well.
He also pointed towards the intensity of the oversight portrayed by Google. He said that there could not be an explanation under which it would seem right to gain access to the personal data of people who were installing and purchasing the apps until they themselves opted for it.
