Android is an open operating system that offers users and programmers a multitude of working features that extend the functionality of a mobile device. However, along with amenities, such openness also poses a threat to users, as it makes their personal and other data vulnerable. To eliminate such a security breach, the new version of Google’s Android 9.0 P OS will have a feature that prohibits any application, not just malicious ones, from activating the camera of mobile equipment and shooting quietly from the user. The presence of such a function will prevent not only the leak of personal and personal data of a person, but also exclude the possibility of using the information stolen from him for personal gain. As Android P developers guarantee, any unauthorized surveillance will be ruled out. 5e2ec9bbb3232b With such a negative practice, when malicious applications without the knowledge of a person were shooting from his device, Google has been struggling since the release of Android 8.0 Oreo. The company demanded that applications that actively used the camera notify users of this by sending a notification. And even if the viewfinder on the device itself was not visible, its presence was detected through the notification panel. And in Android P, Google’s developers decided to completely ban applications from using the camera in the background. However, “good” programs fall under such severe restrictions. In particular, now applications that protect mobile devices against theft will become useless. On the one hand, it’s correct that they will be forced to report the shooting, but on the other hand, thieves will also be informed about ongoing surveillance from the front camera.
