How do you prevent apps from collecting your private data on Android phones?

 

Users' phone data is no longer secure, as we frequently hear news about frequently hacked apps. Many apps, including Facebook, have been targeted to collect personal data from users.

Also, that's why those ads show items that have been searched for or browsed recently.

Search giant Google announced updated privacy and security policies at its developers' I/O 2019 conference ahead of the release of the new android update "10".

If you're worried about your privacy and want to prevent apps from collecting your data, here are some tips that can help you control permissions on Android.
Don't allow all apps to access your data:

Sometimes we notice that a weather app, for example, seeks permission to make calls or access to the camera, which doesn't make sense because it's a weather app and all it needs to do is locate and connect to the Internet.

Similarly, if an app or game requests access to the microphone, there is a chance that you will be heard.

So pay attention if an app asks for permission seems strange, do not hesitate to reject it and if the app is designed and refused to run it without permission, consider downloading an alternative app from the App Store.

Users can also control apps one by one. We will give in this article from the network how to do this.

1. Go to the "settings" of your Android phone.


 2. Look for an "apps" option based on your smartphone.


3. Click on the selected app from the menu.

4. Go to the "Permission" section.


5. Turn off and replace it in front of each ear such as a microphone, camera, calls, etc.

Alternatively, users can also go to Security settings > app permissions and choose the type of permission to see if all apps have been granted that permission. Users here can also remove and add new apps.
