Google launches Checks, an AI-powered privacy compliance tool for mobile apps

Checks is a project developed at Google’s in-house incubator, Area 120.

Google has launched a new tool called Checks that uses AI to detect privacy and compliance issues in mobile apps. The solution will be available to both Android and iOS mobile app developers.

Checks, co-founded by Fergus Hurley and Nia Castelly, is a project developed at Google’s in-house incubator, Area 120. Checks helps developers make informed decisions by identifying potential compliance issues, providing clear actionable insights in simple language, and offering links to relevant resources.

To use Checks, Android app developers can login to their Google account and provide their Google Play app ID. The tool will then scan all mobile apps for their privacy policies, SDK information and network traffic to arrive at the results. The tool uses Natural Language Processing to scan through app privacy disclosure agreements.

Checks’ paid services come in three tiers: the starter pack at USD 249 per month, USD 499 per month for premium users and custom pricing for enterprise users.
