New Google guidelines prevent apps from collecting unnecessary data

Meet Datally, a new way to understand, control and save mobile data - Google Blog

In conference, Dhwani Shah, product manager of Google's Next Billion Users team, said that the goal of this application is to help people save up to 30% of their mobile data consumption because in many countries there is still confusion of the data administration registered by their devices and the one that they receive from their service providers. This new app is known as "Datally", which is created to help you understand exactly where your data is being used and cut down on the unnecessary amount you're using.

Ads are just a fact of life in mobile apps. Google has started rolling out the app on Saturday, Nov. 30.

One of the significant features of this it has a button at the top of the app that will show you for stopping all the background data usage, so that the active apps on the screen will only use the mobile-data.

The app helps users keep tabs on their data usage, broken down by the hour of the day, or segregated by apps.


Along with showing real-time smartphone data use, Datally reveals which apps are involved and lets people stop them as they wish. Apps that save and disseminate such personal data that doesn't need to be collected must explain to the user how the data is going to be used.

This app, called Datally, allows users to track their data usage in real time, and get personalized recommendations on saving data along with notifications of public Wi-Fi spots available nearby. That's why the search giant built an ad-blocking feature into Chrome, and why it's banning another category of ads - lockscreen advertisements - from applications hosted on the Google Play Store.

Shah said that storage in smartphones is another problem in the target countries of Google. You can also block data with one tap if an app's data usage gets out of control. Like their other app Waze, Datally can also collect user ratings to provide an accurate picture of network speeds in the area.
