HealthKit privacy

Health information is very sensitive, and HealthKit gives its users full control over their data to decide which data is to be shared with the third-party apps, and which apps can share or use this data. Here, I will list some points to consider while working with HealthKit:

  • Don't use the information that is gained from HealthKit for advertising or other similar services.

  • You must not disclose any information gained to a third party without getting permission from the user. Even with permission, you can share this data only with those third parties that provide fitness or health services.

  • You can't sell information gained from HealthKit to any other service or platform.

  • You can share this information with a third party, for medical research, only if the user consents.
