Google will close social network Google until the end of 2019 — Rambler News Service


Google will close social network Google until the end of August, 2019, it is said in the statement of the company. Google also recognized that it has allowed leakage of personal data of users of a social network. "We close Google for users. Within our Strobe audit project we have found an error in one of API Google. The mistake meant that applications had access to fields of a profile which were available to the user, but are noted as public. The social network will be closed until the end of August, 2019" — it is said in the statement. Google has specified that in open access there were such data of users as a full name, the e-mail address, an occupation, gender and age. The mistake could mention up to 500 thousand accounts. The company has corrected an error in March, 2018. Also the company will start more detailed permissions of the account of Google. "Instead of viewing of all requested permissions on one screen of the application will have to display each requested permission on one in the dialog box. For example, if the developer of the application requests access both to records of the calendar, and to documents of a disk, then the user will be able to open the general access to one record, but not to all" — it is said in the statement. In addition, the company will limit to applications access to data of the Gmail e-mail client. Access will be got by e-mail clients, services of backup of e-mail and service of productivity after safety check. In addition of Google will limit access of annexes to magazines of calls and the SMS of users. On Monday, October 8, The Wall Street Journal has reported about leakage of hundreds of thousands of users of a social network of Google. Google didn't begin to open information on leak because of unwillingness to draw attention of regulators and to cause damage to reputation of the company.
