The Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has begun a campaign to clamp down on privacy missteps by app developers, TechNode reports. The ministry's action comes after one of its think tanks, the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, discovered the data collection methods of 75% of the country's 130,000 developers violate Chinese privacy laws. The MIIT set a Nov. 10 deadline for developers to align processes with the law. Apps that remain in violation after the deadline will face the potential of being suspended or shut down during the first three weeks of December.
