The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) commissioned Apadmi to conduct a study to identify and map the security and privacy requirements set by official, manufacturer-supported and third-party app stores, based on information found or signposted when creating an app.

The study focused on identifying and mapping what documentation and feedback is provided by app store operators, to developers, during the app development process, specifically in terms of security and privacy content. This included capturing any documentation and feedback provided by app store operators, which sets out what responsibilities are currently placed on app developers for ensuring that appropriate security and privacy is built into apps.

The report was conducted over nine calendar weeks from 7th July to 9th August 2021, across the following 11 app stores; Google Play Store, Apple App Store, Samsung Galaxy Store Seller Portal, Huawei AppGallery, Amazon Appstore, Microsoft Store, Cydia, Aptoide, GetJar, AltStore and APKPure.

The findings of this study have been published today and can be found in the attachment below.
