The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves to protect data and allow citizens to exercise greater control over how organizations use their data. But, what’s in it for app developers? How will it affect businesses in the app world?
- The app owners should also focus on providing users with the option to delete their accounts and all the data associated with it from the system.
- Some of the apps also rely on third parties for data analytics features. App owners of such apps must also ensure that these analytics packages are also compliant with the GDPR rules.
- App owners must also re-evaluate their security protocols and the tools they use for the same. The manners in which passwords are stored also need to be in compliance with the GDPR rules.
- Especially products and apps that serve the EU customers will need urgent revision and compliance with the GDPR policy. App owners can put temporary restrictions until the changes are made.
It’s not only about following a new set of regulations. For most businesses it’s about letting your customers know that you as a company value their privacy and are willing to take action to protect it.
