Google removed a ‘vital’ privacy feature in Android and the EFF is pissed
Posted: 15-Dec-2013 [Source: Venture Beat]

[Earlier this week Google released a privacy control app which was widely hailed as a big step forward for user privacy, only to later say that the app was release by accident.]

Meghan Kelly -- "Google recently released and took back one of the biggest privacy features for Android since its launch.

And we’re a little bummed.

Yesterday, the Electronic Frontier Foundation wrote about a new and extremely important privacy tool in Android. Today, it realized the tool had actually been removed in an update to the mobile operating system earlier this week. After chatting with Google, the privacy advocacy group isn’t satisfied with why it was pulled."
