Checks from Area 120 by Google provides increased visibility into your app’s data collection and sharing behaviors, and highlights where there may be potential compliance issues under regulations like GDPR and CCPA. Actionable insights are available to all key stakeholders on your team; whether they’re developers, app portfolio managers, or legal counsel. The result is a cost-effective way to build privacy compliance, reduce legal and reputational risk, and enhance trust and security for end users.
Helping developers balance the demands of creating delightful app experiences and honoring end users’ privacy rights forms the foundation of a safer digital ecosystem.
We believe every developer – no matter the stage or size of their company - deserves access to affordable, innovative tools and platforms that offer best practices and recommendations to meet today’s ever-changing regulatory demands.
That’s why our team of entrepreneurial Googlers joined Area 120, Google’s internal incubator, to create and build the next platform that will help developers thrive.
Our top priority is to have a solid privacy-by-design framework; tools like Checks that proactively provide needed information are extremely helpful to someone like me in a legal role so I don’t have to ask developers to provide it.
We go out of our way to ensure we're following best practices regarding privacy. Still, Checks took hours of worry away from our team because it alerts us of any thing we may have missed across different requirements for local regulations and stores.
Checks improves the transparency and alignment across our business-side and our developers.
Kids' and families' safety comes first at Sesame Workshop, so being transparent with our audience is a big priority for us; Checks is an important and useful tool to help us achieve that.
The Store Disclosure tool is very helpful. It saves a lot of time from having to hunt down the information manually.
