In recent years, mobile Internet applications (App) have become widely used and play an important role in promoting economic and social development and in serving people's livelihood. At the same time, Apps often collect excessive personal information or force collection of personal information, with users unable to install them if they don't consent.
In order to implement the principle of the Cyber Security Law of the PRC that the collection of personal information is to be legal, proper, and necessary; to standardize Apps' collection of personal information, and to ensure the security of citizens' personal information, the State Internet Information Office has researched and drafted this Scope of Necessary Personal Information for Common Types of Mobile Internet Applications (APPs), which is now released to the public for comments.
The public may email feedback and comments to: security@cac.gov.cn; the deadline for feedback is December 16, 2020.
