Source: Project Strobe: Updates to Our User Data Policy from Chromium
On May 30, Google announced the next iteration of Project Strobe, a root-and-branch review of third-party developer access to user data. This announcement included the following two updates to our User Data Policy:
The policies for these two changes are now published to the updated User Data Policy. They will go into effect on October 15, 2019.
To ensure compliance with this policy update, we suggest developers check their extensions per the guidelines below. After October 15, 2019, items that violate these updates to the User Data policy will be removed or rejected from the Web Store and will need to become compliant to be reinstated. We will continue to take action on violations of the User Data Policy in its current form.
You can find more information in the updated User Data FAQ. Thank you for joining us in building a better web with transparency, choice and control for both users and developers.
