Apple limits how apps can handle and share users' contact lists
Apple limits how apps can handle and share users' contact lists https://ift.tt/2HGFC0M Prospective https://ift.tt/2HMLuFW June 12, 2018 at 10:57PM

Apple updated its app guidelines last week, and while the biggest news was a widespread ban on cryptocurrency mining, the company also tightened its grip on what developers can and can't do with user info. Specifically, it restricted apps' abilities to collect, harness and share anyone's contact information.

Per Bloomberg, app developers have been abusing their access to users' contact info for years. Their apps ask for access first, then harvesting the data for marketing purposes or even selling it outright -- all without permission from the contacts affected. Apple's updates to the App Store guidelines now prohibit developers from making databases of info gleaned from address books, nor can they request access to contact info under one pretense and then use it for something else -- they have to get consent for what they're actually using it for. And selling that data to third parties is now forbidden.

Apple isn't making these changes in response to any particular scandal, though its CEO Tim Cook certainly criticized Facebook during the Cambridge Analytica scandal for that company's misuse of user data. (He later rejected the assertion that Apple inappropriately received any personal info from the social media company during this time period.) But following the implementation of the EU's privacy-intensive GDPR last month, restricting third parties' potential access to data sourced from users on Apple's devices seems a smart move anyway.
