New privacy functions
With Android 12 (Go Edition), Google has also simplified guest mode (which allows a third party to use the same smartphone without accessing the main user’s data), by introducing a profile system, which can be activated directly from the lock screen.
Switching from the main user profile to the guest profile takes place in an instant without compromising the device owner’s privacy. Finally, this new version of Android (Go Edition) introduces a dedicated privacy dashboard.
It details which smartphone items the apps access, such as the microphone, camera, or location, and allows you to revoke the granted permissions if necessary.
Finally, a new green indicator is automatically displayed in the status bar, at the top right of the screen, as soon as an app has accessed the microphone or smartphone camera.
