Recently, Huawei AppGallery has further optimized and upgraded the review system, launched an age-rating questionnaire service, and introduced the concept of age-rating from the initial stage of application to strengthen the management of application age-rating content.
Huawei said that after the age rating questionnaire service is launched when developers apply for an app to be put on the shelves, they need to truthfully fill in the age rating questionnaire according to the application function and content. Bad language, regulated items, and activities, simulated gambling, monetary payments, law and ethics, user interaction, user information collection, etc. Based on the content of the questionnaire filled in by the developer, the system automatically evaluates whether the application meets the basic requirements for listing. If it does not meet the requirements, the application cannot be listed on the Huawei AppGallery. If it meets the requirements, the system automatically evaluates the user's minimum age requirements.
Huawei AppGallery is the first app marketplace in China that adopts age-level management. According to the category of the app, the minimum age requirement for users is restricted according to the gradient. 7 years old, 12 years old, 16 years old, and 18 years old.
Users can set content access restrictions in the "App Market", and the system automatically matches applications based on the user's age. If the user's age is lower than the minimum age required by the application, the user cannot download the application. If a user is younger than 16 years old, Then the user cannot download apps with an age requirement of 16+.
