User data is no longer as secure as was also seen when news about data collection of apps is widely published. Several systems – like Facebook – have been developed to use users’ personal data.
It’s also the reason behind the advertisements that display checked or browsed products lately.
Search Giant, at its development conference I/O 2019 Google revealed revised privacy and security policy for its upcoming Android app ‘Q’.
If you are concerned about your privacy and want to prevent applications from data collection, here are some tips to help.
Often we find a weather application requiring authorisation for a call or for a camera, but the location and internet access is not sensible, since it is a weater app and it really has to operate correctly.
In the same way, there is a risk they will listen to if the app or game calls for access to the microphone.
So if an app demands permission which is strange, feel free to ignore it and if the app is uncompromising and refuses to function without permission, please consider installing an alternate app from the app store
Users can handle the program permissions one by one and can do so.
1. Go to the ‘Settings’ Android phone. Go to the ‘Settings’ Android phone
2. Check the “Apps” choice or mobile device manager
3. Tap on the individual app in the catalog
4. Go to the segment “Permission”
5. Switch off and turn to any authorization such as microphones, cameras, calls, etc.
Alternatively, users should go to the ‘Protection’ settings -> System Permissions and select the form of permission to search the allowance on all applications. Users will uninstall and install new programs here as well. And that’s how to stop data collection from apps.
