The details of the basic features of the Android P, which will be the next official version of Android, continue to be eliminated. According to new information, access to the camera in the backplane applications, which creates great concern for privacy, will be prevented.
Confidentiality worries, one of the biggest problems of the smartphone world, make more people nervous every day. The evidence is provided that the phone applications have been upgraded to the device’s hardware when the backplane is turned on. It is said that our images are recorded through our voices, even through cameras.
The vast majority of this is being transferred to cloud systems to sell social media giants to advertisers. At least after a year in which concerns such as 2017 have ceased, and after recent confessions from Facebook, the table is in the middle.
Applications running on the backplane with P, which will be version 9 of Android, will be prevented from accessing the devices’ cameras. This improvement, which we think will remain in the shadow of the features that will come along with the new version, can scare privacy concerns a bit. All of the current editions allow for theft of personal data via spyware applications.
In 2014, Android developer Szymon Sidor received a blog post explaining how applications have sneaked into camera hardware to take photos and videos secretly. Since those days, the screens of the devices have been turned off and my mind has been constantly plugged. In social media, it has been widely held that it claims to be ambitious and more and more people are aware of the issue.
There is another open issue: If Google can go ahead with this software in advance, why has not it released a core software update for older versions of Android? From this perspective, we are confronted with the fact that Google’s biggest revenue is advertising revenues. I think that Google is trying to suppress a potential crisis by preventing further privacy concerns.
The name and content of Android 9’s version P, the world’s most widely used operating system, will become clear in the coming months. Keep following us to be aware of all the details.
