Android 10: All the new features to expect from Google’s latest operating system

The one feature I’d really like to see is some way to educate users not to download apps without thinking “Do I really need this?” and “Do I trust this?”…:

[…] With more than 2.5 billion devices around the world using Android, security has become a major concern for the developers of the OS. Just last month, cyber security researchers revealed that scam apps on Google Play had been downloaded more than 8 million times by Android users.]

In an effort to better protect its users, Android 10 will now require all apps to request permissions more frequently when accessing things like a person’s location data.

The Privacy and Location menus will also be placed in the same spot in the Android Settings menu, regardless of which device the operating system is running on.

Improved encryption will also be introduced, with support for the TLS.13 standard now coming as the default setting.
