The new policy is set to take effect on September 15th, 2019. Google is enacting a new data deletion policy for Android apps that allow account creation. The policy will require developers to provide an option to initiate account and data deletion from within the app and online. This is so that users can request account and data deletion without having to reinstall an app. The goal is to have a "readily discoverable option" to initiate an app account deletion process from both within an app and outside of it. The new policy is set to take effect on September 15th, 2019. This is good news for users who want more transparency and control over their data. It also gives app developers a clear set of guidelines to follow.
