From October 15, Chrome plug-ins will be more safer

The company announced today that third-party developers have until October 15 to comply with new user data rules or will risk being excluded from the Chrome Web Store.

New changes to the Strobe project were introduced at the beginning of the year following an audit of Chrome third-party plugins and apps on how users manage their data. New measures anticipate that developers undertake a more conservative approach to user permissions. Add-ons should require as few data as possible.

Moreover, any app that manages user content should post a privacy policy. In the past, Google requires such a pact only for plugins that have access to sensitive information touching only a small number of applications.

In February, a study found that 85% of Chrome plugins did not have a privacy policy. After October 15, any app that violates new privacy policies is likely to be removed from the Chrome Web Store.

Google has also updated the developer’s manual.
