What exactly do these attitudes and what not?

Lever for the inexorable data collection is the software Development Kit (SDK) Firebase used for millions of apps. Apps with FireBase code has been registered every call to an app page while at least the URL of the page, the Referring Page (Referrer) and the name of the page (Title) report to Google Server. Google Zwing the app programmers virtually for the use of Firebase, because without FireBase there was neither access to Google Analytics nor Google’s advertising mediation. Also for the marketing of the app in Google’s Play Store Rule Firebase Forced.

"Thus, all requirements of content of the app for Google will be more accessible, collectable and usable – regardless of whether the user has excluded the approval of the collection and evaluation of this information", the application leaves. Google use the data to take billions by individual assignment of advertising circuits. Not only Android, but also numerous iPhone apps are affected.

For detailed information about using your apps, you had to use services like Google’s Display Video 360. An annual subscription costs rough app operators in the US six-digit terms.

"That Google has such detailed data and as a hostage is proof that Google recalls consumer data predominantly for its own use and financial profit and collects", mean the two plaintiffs, a californian and a man from Florida. They apply for recognition as a collection claim for millions of affected as well as a jury procedure. A reaction of Google is not yet available.
