        I saw something somewhere about a Privacy Policy being required in October 2018.  I think it said for new and updated apps, but I'm curious about apps already in the store.  Any info or links would be appreciated.

         

        Regards, Patrick

          Required for new and updated means not mandated for existing/phased in, usually. They'll get you next time.

              Hi KMT,

              I would like to publish my first app just for test and, for the time being, I still haven't a website neither a privacy policy

              Considering the test purpose, is it possible not to fill URL fields and complete the distribution process without be rejected ?

              Many thanks

              Regards

                  If you mean via testFlight, as that page, for an app in ASC, notes: "Complete test information is required to submit a build for external testing."

                   

                  App Review can't reject something they don't review, and a review isn't required for apps that only target internal testers.

                      Thanks KMT for your prompt feedback.

                      Yes I want to test it with testFlight and I was referring to URLs requested in App Connect (  tab "App information" and "App IOS 1.0 in preparation" - see screenshots below )

                      So I can leave blanks the  below fields without risk of rejections, is it correct my understanding?

                      Many thanks in advance

                          Do you understand the difference between internal and external (testflight) testing? Which of those will you be doing?

                              External testing

                               

                              The problem is that I don't have a website neither a privacy policy - but this is just because before I want to know if my app works and is appreciated and then going ahead with website development  / privacy requirement .. ( as logical steps sequence - in my opinion )

                               

                              So..is there a chance to pass the review just for external testing without providing policy's URL ?

                               

                              Many thanks
