Prepare for Google Play's data disclosure requirements

In May 2021, Google Play announced the new Data safety section, which is a developer-provided disclosure for an app's data collection, sharing, and security practices. This document helps you complete the requirements for this data disclosure in regards to your usage of the reCAPTCHA Enterprise Android SDK.

We aim to be as transparent as possible in supporting you. However, as the app developer, you are solely responsible for deciding how to respond to Google Play's Data safety section form regarding your app's end-user data collection, sharing, and security practices.
