Google Play can spy on Android users


The main innovation of Android 6.0 Marshmallow was a system of permits.

It was designed to be a tool of control in the hands of users, through which they would be able to deny applications access to the different functions of your smartphone. For example, it can prevent the program to interact with the location services, read SMS messages and view and make calls. That’s just how it turned out, the requirements of the system permissions can be easily circumvented with the silent approval of Google itself, according to the with reference to

It turns out that in order for the permission system spread to a specific application, the developer must tailor it in accordance with the requirements of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. If this is not done, it can still work on devices running this and even newer versions of the operating system, but will not be subject to the requirements of the permitting system, having unlimited access to system services and functions of the smartphone.

As apps spying on you

As found by researchers at the University of Maryland, many developers use this miscalculation and Google still have not updated their apps for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This is in order to as long as possible to maintain control over user data, experts believe. Otherwise, what prevents the developers regularly update their apps to adapt them to the SDK for Android 6.0 Marshmallow?

But the saddest thing about this situation is that Google almost no matter how the developers execute the policy of optimizing their applications to run with system permissions. Initially, the search giant gave the creators IN this 3 years, after which for those who do not obey the new requirements was not followed by any sanctions. Google just left it as is, thereby subjecting users of the danger and I will dwell in developers a sense of permissiveness.
