Privacy is one of the issues that most concerns Android users. Data breaches have become all too common, with personal data such as passwords being leaked on occasion. Applications installed on the phone use user data to perform their functions. The problem occurs when some application exceeds its functions.
Since when this happens, it ends up generating a problem, and that is that these applications share users’ personal data. Therefore, Android users seek to reduce the chances of their personal data being leaked. For this to be possible, there are a number of aspects to take into account.
Be careful with social networks
Social networks are the applications that handle the most personal data of users. We have also seen how they are largely responsible for sharing or filtering them, especially since Facebook has experienced numerous scandals in the last two years. Frequent use of them means that they will have more personal information about you.
The recommendation of many is to reduce the use of social networks, due to the enormous amount of information they handle. Luckily, new tools have been arriving for users, which allow them to manage their privacy a little more, Instagram already shows you which companies have access to your data, for example. So if you are going to use them, at least using these management options will be of great help.
