According to the XDA Developers developer forum, the Google Play Store will now be anonymous as in the Chrome browser. Details have not been specified but essentially this may mean downloads of private applications to users.
An incognito Play Store can allow searching and downloading apps without collecting user data. This would make the Google Play Store a safer, more private app store, though.
Due to the size of the Play Store and the presence of Android on so many mobile phones, the app store is the target of thousands of malicious apps, as we have reported on EBox. However, measures like Google Play Protect and this incognito mode can be another step in the right direction.
One of the focuses of Android 10 is privacy.
With Android 10, Google says users have more control over the privacy of their data. One of the biggest examples is controlling when apps access location, and you can choose from 3 options: always allow, allow only when the app is in use, or deny access at all.
Regarding internet and application activity, Android 10 will allow you to decide the data stored by websites and for how long. You can also disable data submission for ad personalization. Google has also emphasized security updates, though it may depend on phone manufacturers.
