Google has assured users to give full privacy protection since tech giant announced its next Android release, Android L, would encrypt user’s data by default.
Though encryption is being used in Android since three years but it should be turn on to start encrypt user’s data, and many aren’t aware about the service. The move will make it more difficult for hacker or law enforcement departments to access private information.
A Google spokesman said, “As part of our next Android release, encryption will be enabled by default out of the box, so you won’t even have to think about turning it on.”
The announcement came a week after Apple claimed that devices running on iOS 8 operating system would encrypt data by default and even company itself couldn’t access user’s information. CEO Tim Cook posted an online message, told his company’s philosophy that a “great customer experience shouldn’t come at the expense of your privacy”.
Major US tech firms have been criticized for quite some time to hand over users private information to law enforcement departments, striking renown firms which claims to provide privacy protection, Google, Facebook, Apple and Twitter have been surrounded by rumors to be in contact with surveillance agencies.
