This feature involves tagging VPN apps with an independent security reviews badge for apps that have undergone an independent security audit of their software and platform.
With Android VPN Apps Getting Audit Badge, Google aims to encourage software developers to take cybersecurity seriously while assisting Android users in making informed decisions about the VPN apps they choose. This initiative showcases Google’s commitment to providing a more secure and transparent online experience for its users. With the ‘Independent security review’ badge displayed in the Play Store’s Data Safety section, users can now easily identify secure Android apps, ultimately enhancing their privacy and peace of mind.
