Check App Privacy Details in iOS 14 iPhone and iPad
In the wake of blatant privacy breaches where a number of apps have been caught abusing personal information in the veil of delivering a tailormade personalized experience, Apple has put privacy on the forefront. Whether it’s tracking you across apps and websites or linking certain data to you, an app must be transparent in dealing with you – right from the outset.
By viewing what sort of data an app collects and what it does with that, you can decide whether or not that app is worth downloading on your iPhone or iPad. To best summarize the whole situation, it’s pretty much like ordering a dish in a restaurant depending on what and how much you want to eat.

Without taking anyone’s side, I would like to say that it’s always better to be crystal clear about the way you deal with an end-user. After all, using or abusing anyone’s personal information by keeping them in the dark hurts an end-user more than anyone else.
