Back in February of this year, Google announced in a blog post that Privacy Sandbox would also being coming to Android in addition to the web in order to better protect user data and privacy, saying:

Google is bringing its new Privacy Sandbox standards to mobile to improve user privacy on Android smartphones, as part of its plan to replace third-party cookies on the web. For those who are unfamiliar, Google’s Privacy Sandbox initiative consists of several components, including Google Topics and FLEDGE. While Google Topics divides the web into topics and groups users based on their interests, FLEDGE is dedicated to facilitating remarketing or showing ads on websites based on a user’s previous browsing history.

“Our goal with the Privacy Sandbox on Android is to develop effective and privacy enhancing advertising solutions, where users know their information is protected, and developers and businesses have the tools to succeed on mobile. While we design, build and test these new solutions, we plan to support existing ads platform features for at least two years, and we intend to provide substantial notice ahead of any future changes.” To help developers prepare their apps and online services for the introduction of Privacy Sandbox on mobile, Google has now released the first developer preview for Privacy Sandbox on Android.

The Privacy Sandbox Developer Preview provides additional platform APIs and services on top of the Android 13 Beta including an SDK, system images, an emulator and developer documentation. This will allow developers to do preliminary testing of these new technologies and evaluate how they might adopt them in their apps. As Google plans to test Privacy Sandbox on Android over the next two years, it could be some time before end users get to experience the new set of standards for themselves. In the meantime though, you can always grab a VPN, an anonymous browser and one of the best privacy apps for Android to further protect yourself against online tracking.
