Major update coming for the Android system is referred to currently as ” Android P ” given that the company Google has not yet revealed the official name for this version. However, given the open source nature of Android, it has detected some hints I’ve for new features that may come with this new version of Android. The latest hint that Android P will improve infrastructure security by not allowing for inactive applications to access the camera of your device.
I have been monitoring some of the code in the project Android Open Source Project, which implying that system Android P will prevent applications that are running in the background from reaching the camera. This will prevent a malicious application that runs in the background from reaching the camera for taking pictures of victims through access to the camera without their knowledge. Will apply it by tracking the User ID of the comments. It’s a symbol that is assigned by the system Android for each application when it is installed and the User ID is still the same as long as the application is installed on the device.
If you uncover a camera in the Android P that the User ID is in the idle state, this means that the device is in the case of dozing Doze, it will create an error and prevent access to the camera. In case if User ID is not active send requests sequential to the camera, you’ll an error is generated immediately, thus not allowing for the access to the camera.
Did not confirm the US company Google so far what features will reach the Android P, so we may need some time before we hear official information about this system of Google Inc.
