Android 11 will protect against surveillance through camera and microphone

Google developers are constantly improving not only the interface, but also the protection of mobile OS. Another innovation discovered in the Android 11 pre-assembly code will allow smartphone owners to prevent the activity of spyware that uses the microphone and gadget camera to steal personal information.

One of the important innovations in Android 10 is the ability to fine-tune application access to geolocation services – for example, only during use, not in the background, as was implemented in previous versions of the operation.

To maintain security and privacy on different devices, we recommend using VPN for Android!

What restrictions will Android 11 get

According to Phonearena, Android 11 will support similar access rights control for the camera and microphone device. If you select the option “while in use” the program will not be able to “spy” on the owner of the gadget in the background. It will also be possible to issue a “one-time pass” only for the current session of the program. In this case you will have to confirm its access every time.

It is expected that such a measure will not only limit the number of confidential data leaks to advertisers, but will also prevent “spy” activity of malicious programs that can follow the user in the background.

When Android 11 comes out.

The exact release date of the final Android 11 version has not yet been announced by the developers – now the mobile OS is in the pre-test stage.
