Google added iOS’s privacy labels to Gmail

Google has ultimately added the Apple App Store privacy labels to its Gmail app. It is the major Google app to get the labels, after get added to YouTube when it was updated earlier this month.

Apple’s app privacy labels show all the things that the app can access, not the information the app will access.

The information in the labels is submitted by Google itself. Apple doesn’t make promises about its accuracy.
