Data, Apps and Developers

Jishnu Menon

As Mozilla launches Firefox OS and the Firefox Marketplace, we’ve been focused on improving privacy through empowering app developers and users to improve transparency, choice and control, including implementing a tiered permissions model as well as tips for designing apps with privacy in mind. Over the next year, we’ll be rolling out more features and resources designed to make data practices more transparent for users and easier to indicate for developers.

Simultaneous to our own efforts, others have been innovating in the same space to try and push data transparency forward on mobile devices. We’re supportive of projects like these because they help drive the conversation forward and help to make privacy better across services and marketplaces:

Solutions that empower both developers and consumers are a critical part of making privacy better for users and the web and Mozilla looks forward to continuing our contributions to the growing number of initiatives around this issue.
