Google has been accused by DuckDuckGo, a privacy-focused web browser, of spying on its users after Google published details of the personal data it has gathers from it’s customers.
A number of technology companies have been adding App Privacy labels to their apps, outlining what data they gather from their users in accordance with Apple’s App Store guidelines. Google took longer than other technology firms to release their privacy labels, resulting in accusations that it was reluctant to do so due to it’s dubious data-collecting practices.
DuckDuckGo tweeted, “after months of stalling, Google finally revealed how much personal data they collect in Chrome and the Google app. No wonder they wanted to hide it.”
