Android P will limit network activity monitoring rights to protect user privacy

Google I/O Conference is around a corner and on May 9 it will be held in Mountain View. The CEO will kick off with a Keynote speech.

One of the highlights of this event is that Google will formally introduce the Android P system, announce the codename (Peppermint peppermint candy is the most popular) and launch a second developer preview version.

In any of the current Android mobile phones, any one of the APPs can perform all-round monitoring of the network connection activity and do not need manual consent from the user. In short, the A program in the mobile phone can know when the B program is connected to the outside world and what server is involved in the communication.

This is a terrible phenomenon, especially when the importance of privacy and security is increasing.

AOSP has already made repairs to this privilege, allowing only certain programs (such as agents) to take over and master the full state of network activity.
