Sources say Google will give Android users more privacy controls
Sources from Bloomberg are saying that Google is ready to give Android users more control over what data applications are allowed to access.
The Android operating system with give users more accessibility in that they have choices over what applications are allowed to access, people familiar with the matter said. A move to giving users more privacy controls would be excellent. After all, what game really needs access to your phone calls? And what texting app really needs access to your photos? It’s a big privacy concern for many Android users.
I’m sure we’ll hear more about this during Google’s keynote at their developer conference in San Francisco later this month.
While this news isn’t a confirmed fact, it isn’t a far-fetched idea either. After all, Google had revamped and simplified how users are informed about what permissions applications are using at last year’s conference.
Do you like the prospect of having more control over what applications are able to access? Let us know in the comments.
