Apple rolled back security issues on children app, it has been facing criticism for lack of security protection for children data while using it. Developers of children App said, “definitely we will solve the issue as soon as possible”, and improve apple products.
It is a considerable issue when the parents visit the kid’s category on the App Store, they believe that apps would protect their children’s data,
and it will provide only appropriate content, and app should maintain Parental control in order to link out of the app, for monitoring purpose it should enable request permissions or purchasing opportunities.
It’s difficult to target personal identifiable data or device information might be transmitted to third parties while accessing the app advertisements
are human-viewed for children age-appropriate content in order to be displayed.
The guidelines, which were initially reported at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, would have denied applications advertised to children from utilizing outside Analytics software that gathers detailed information about who is utilizing the app and would have banned the app from displaying ads.
However, restrictions set off an exclamation among developers who protected their utilization of analytics as benign and said advertising services already screen ads for appropriateness.
On Thursday, Apple made minor changes in existing policy, which enable children’s app developers to use analytics software “in a limited way”, provided the services don’t collect or transmit personally recognizable data about children or data that could join with data from different sources to identify them.
Under the updated guidelines, advertising will be permitted, as long as it has been reviewed for correctness.
