    Every app development company will ask the app user about the notice which needs to be relevant to the user. This functionality is based on the OS design framework. This is much important to ensure the user about the notice before gaining the access to the data, transmission, and collection. For example, every app will have a privacy policy that needs to be accessed before the user.

    This is mandatory to be offered as the app will allow the user to get completely comfortable before they get registered to the app. Every application is required to have a signup procedure with social media credentials to log in. Even for the easy creation of account social media credentials are also used which is the access of data or particularly the personal data.

    Every app developer must respect and understand the corresponding context which the app will be collecting from the user. Few categories of applications might also gather financial data which the user will be provided confidentially.
