New privacy options are coming for Huawei phones with EMUI 11.
With each new version of Android, Google puts the focus once again on user privacy. The truth is that it is something that some consider a losing battle, no matter how many security measures are taken and functions that are activated on a mobile. Data leakage is sometimes something that happens in the companies themselves responsible for the software that is in our device when some vulnerability in the security of the same takes place.
However that is something that is beyond our control, but what we can be aware of is the security options that we can activate to try to close a little more the fence of our privacy. EMUI 11, despite being a layer that is still anchored in Android 10, has managed to take advantage of the tools available to integrate new security options.
New options for sharing photos
One of the two big pieces of news in the privacy section has to do with when sharing photos. It is known that photos contain information or traces of private information such as location, which may be preferable not to share. EMUI 11 allows, before sending a photo, to remove potentially sensitive information such as the aforementioned location or information about the device from which the photo was taken.
EMUI Notepad is highly rated by Huawei users. In EMUI 11 it also improves to receive a plus more privacy and security. These notes may contain sensitive information, so Huawei has decided that the user can lock them, to upload them to a kind of digital vault. To proceed to unlock them, access will be requested using a registered fingerprint, face, or password. This means that in case of loss or theft, the information contained in the notes cannot be consulted either.
Although we are not in a layer that drinks from Android 11, EMUI 11 has added a privacy option to control permissions on applications. This way you can choose when you will have access to sensitive elements such as the camera, microphone, or location data of the phone, either for one time or for all.
