The Android development team announced that it will be incorporating the Data safety form in Google Play Console. Additional guidance is also available in the help center, developer guide, Play Academy Course, and more.

The rollout will happen gradually over the next few weeks as access is slowly expanded to everyone. In order to submit your app information in Play Console, look for a new section called “Data safety” in App content and fill out your form. 

With this, users will see the Data safety summary in store listings. Each app profile will show what data an app collects or shares and highlight certain safety details.
