Android M to launch at Google I/O 2015, privacy control, security to make users more confident

Google I/O 2015 is being anxiously awaited by millions and millions of Google and Android fans. There is no denying the fact that things are going to be much more improved when it comes to privacy with the Android M, the new generation version of the mobile operating system from search giant.

There are reasons to believe that the search giant will give much more control to users at least when it comes to privacy. Another very important feature of the new version of the mobile operating system will be the fact that this will be very secure.

Google is so much confident of the security of its operating system that it has said that users don’t need any anti-virus third party app to secure their gadgets as the OS is good enough to take care of any security issue. Now the new version is going to be much more better and improved than the previous versions.

As far as privacy is concerned, a new report in the Bloomberg quotes some geeks with inside knowledge of the matter and notes that these privacy controls will allow users what permissions to grant to a particular app, which could include access to photos, contacts, location. The same report goes on to add that the search giant’s latest privacy controls would then place it at par with Apple’s iOS which allows users to decide what apps get permission to location, photos, contacts, microphone, Bluetooth sharing, Calendar, Reminders, etc.

I am sure this is going to make many Android users more confident about the security and safety of their gadgets. Currently the problem with Android is that when a user is downloading an app, it will prompt them about the permissions that the app needs. A user must either accept all these permissions or else they have to cancel installation of the app.
