Quote:These days, Android variants probably run into the thousands. That’s because every vendor modifies the system for its own requirements, and certainly not always for the better. But at the heart of Android lies a well-designed operating system that is becoming more secure with each new version.Full reading: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.
Or rather, it’s becoming more secure when the user does things right. To get hold of a chunk of interesting data in shared storage or gain access to a function that might be unsafe, Android apps always needs the user’s explicit permission. And it’s crucial to set these permissions properly.
We already discussed You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view., so now let’s talk about a more recent version of the operating system — Android 8. First of all, version 8 has way more settings than before, which is both good and bad. Good because you can make the system safer. Bad because setting up all these things is now more complicated and time-consuming. What’s more, the settings are now located in various places, including some fairly nonintuitive ones. But this guide should make sense of it all.
