Google has announced that in the upcoming Android 11, users will have more choice over privacy and location options and how location information gets shared with Android and developers. Android is becoming a lot like iOS 13 in this sense, where the user will have the ability to restrict the app to only give location information on a timed basis, or as in iOS 13 only once – which is good to see.
The extra privacy features are coming in Android 11, which is expected to launch later this year in September.
“Now in Android 11, we’re giving users even more control with the ability to grant a temporary ‘one-time’ permission to sensitive data like location. When users select this option, apps can only access the data until the user moves away from the app, and they must then request permission again for the next access.”
