There will be a new Privacy Dashboard which will make it easier to work out what apps are using your data and allow you to changes settings.
There will also be microphone and camera indicators to let you know when either or both of these is in use and Google are also adding toggles for the microphone and camera that will make i easy for you to shut these off.
There are a range of other new privacy features headed to Android with the release of the Android 12 software, have a look at the video below.
This release will give users more transparency around the data being accessed by apps while providing simple controls to make informed choices. Android is also investing in reducing the scope of permissions so that apps only have access to the data they need for the features they provide.
