#Privacy isn't a Luxury

#Google respond to our low-cost tech campaign. There's some good news, some bad news, and some mediocre news.
Key points
  • Google responded to our campaign.
  • We're pleased to hear that Google are exploring ways to establish clearer standards for pre-installed apps and look forward to finding out more about this going forward.
  • They broadly agreed with us that people should be able to uninstall apps - but we still think they failed to really engage with their role in the sector.
  • Google seem to have misunderstood our points on update mechanisms.
  • Google failed to acknowledge our point about their certification process at all.
