Android's laughable app permission is why I left them for good! This is only for the camera app, I've seen far worse than that with other apps, especially with junk cleaning apps. Permission for Contacts? What in the actual eff?! -_-
AnonD-122899, 21 Nov 2019Welcome to Android. Get an iPhone next time for better security supports.Yeah right. Talking as if the iPhone were immune from exploits. Read here. :
and here, the 'unpatchable' iPhone exploit:
After reading this, I immediately checked all the app in my phone which requested unnecessary storage permission and disabled it. I guess that's the reason why many prefer apple...coz apple does everything for you, you dont have to worry about enable or restricting the permission given to the app..But I just cant let go the freedom in Android, just have to be more cautious when installing app next time, even installing from the play store..
And we knew that most of the celebrity leaked came from iphone...
now i want a phone with pop up camera, rear camera no problem to me for attackers. gps? pfft
AnonD-122899, 21 Nov 2019Welcome to Android. Get an iPhone next time for better security supports.Apple has a lot of backdoors too for their own services, their partners and, of course, for share all with NSA and other agencies too. So, at the end, that is exploitable with the right knowledge.
Ban android ensure google is made to answer
That’s why all those phones are coming with 3/4/5 cams these days.
SMH, taping up the selfie cam. Lol. What about it also picking up audio you guys aren’t taping up the mic as well?
This is a big security flaw but what are they gonna do with our faces?

SpiritWolf, 21 Nov 2019What has this topic to do with 'keyboard warriors'? Its mighty damn huge privacy security hole. Again... clearly not well informed if you have to ask. And very new to this or any forum as well as logic.
That's already done by Google.they already send everything to nsa
So if your phone no longer gets security updates, you're screwed.

For OLD phones
Even A tiny bit tech savy could just make one zip with adb and one click "auto_remove_android_camera.bat" today, in 5 min. You just need enable usb debugging (tons tutorial on YT). Then pick safer camera playstore
It doesnt need unlock bootloader, nor root, works on all stock android (miui/emui/etc need their own version obviously)
