Many people are very sensitive to their data, trying to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. But, as we know, still there are moments when the attackers gain access to personal data or photographs. Google is in a Washington Post interview told what measures will be taken in the Android security of user data.
We are talking about how to encrypt data that is available to Android users since 2011. However, this feature was not enabled by default, and as they say security experts, most people are not even aware of its existence.
Now, however, Google has decided to slightly change the security policy. In the next version of the operating system Android L encryption function is enabled immediately after the activation of the device. Thus each user’s data will be protected.
«Over the past three years there in the Android encryption and keys are always stored locally, so no special services can not gain access to your phone without permission member. In our operating system Android L encryption will work on the device immediately out of the box, so you do not have to worry about turning it on, “- says a company spokeswoman Niki Christoff.
This step, according to Google, is part of a global change in technology companies in the defense of government surveillance. As we know, not just Google, but Apple is introducing more and more different methods to protect users’ personal data.
And how do you feel about the encryption on Android, it is turned on you?
