Xiaomi's MIUI 11 has focused on a set of features that make these smartphones much better. These cover several areas, where the user may need support, at various levels.
After having seen several new features appear, which prepare it for dedicated use in other contexts, a new one is on the way. Above all, MIUI 11 should be more secure, with alerts from apps that abuse Android permissions.
A big news for MIUI 11
Xiaomi has tried to create in MIUI 11 certainly the perfect version Android. It has given new options and new features, which seem to meet what users need and really need. Use what Google creates and elevate it further with your customizations.
Now the Chinese company seems to be security-conscious and wants to give users a lot more information about what the apps are doing. In particular, it will create a new notification, which alerts whenever apps abuse permissions.
The control of permissions will be great
It will be called App Behavior Records and will allow you to record when an app unexpectedly behaves abnormally. This will include, and at the same time, situations in which an app is opened in the background, another app is opened or access is granted to certain permissions, or critical actions.
What is a critical action?
- Record audio in the background
- Calendar access
- Call list access
- Make a call
- Taking photos and videos
- Save or access content on the clipboard
- Access contacts
- Access local location
- Read text messages
- Access to sensor data
- Access to activity data
- Query device information
- Read the phone number
- Access or save data in the background
These situations will trigger notifications that will alert users and ask if it should be authorized. Of course, these may or may not be presented, and with varying degrees of severity, depending on their weight or action involved.
Coming soon on all Xiaomi smartphones
Finally, it will be given the possibility to create lists of apps authorized to have these more permissive and even aggressive behaviors. It will be up to the user to manage these lists and define the permissions that each one has.
Is already testing this new feature on MIUI 11, but only on some devices and with a very limited audience of users. You should later present this novelty and make it reach all your smartphones with this version.
