Google may take off Play Store applications that non privacy policies

as mentioned in

Google is planning to crack down on apps that violate its ‘User Data policy’ and don’t have their own privacy policy.
Of course, when it comes to user data privacy, at times many users themselves don’t bother with reading the privacy policy terms.
Handle the user data securely, including transmitting it using modern cryptography (for example, over HTTPS).”With a lot of apps, privacy policy and encryption standards are never really clear.
In case of apps that collect “personal or sensitive user data “, the app needs to “prominently highlight how the user data will be used and have the user provide affirmative consent for such use,” adds the policy.
Now it looks like Google will make sure the apps do have a policy in place.

Google may remove (or hide) Play Store apps that lack privacy policies

There are more than 2.6 million Android apps available for download from the Google Play Store.
If they don’t, Google may remove those apps from the Play Store, or take steps to “limit the visibility” of apps.
If you rely on apps that meet that description, you may want to make sure to save a backup of the installer in case Google purges your favorite apps from the Play Store.
The Next Web reports that Google is setting a note to some developers letting them know that they have until March 15th to make sure their apps comply with Google’s User Data policy.
I suspect the apps that are least likely to be updated are older ones that are still available for download, but which may not be regularly updated by their developers.
