Android 11 will complicate the surveillance of users
Google will soon introduce the final version of the Android OS 11, and therefore in Network, more details about it. So this time the source has revealed an interesting detail: one-time permits to the new operating system will expand.
Everyone is familiar with so-called credentials in Android 10: when installing the app the user gives (or denies) permission to determine location. In Android 11 the company reportedly went on: «global» credentials will need to give to use the camera or microphone. So if you are not sure in is installed, it can forbid her not only track location but also to access the microphone with the camera.
Of course, this option does not protect against surveillance by the security services or pre-installed on the smartphone spy software, but inexperienced users who are dubious even from Google Play, will be able to compare the features of the program and the need to use its microphone and camera. If the functions are not comparable, then the app will immediately «pull the plug» — disconnect from the camera, microphone, GPS. Accordingly, it will not be able to follow the user.
