    'Google kills Android privacy control feature'

    It is a great news for the readers about Android privacy control feature of Google.

    Google has removed an experimental privacy feature from its Android mobile software.

    The change means that owners of smartphones using Android 4.4.2 can use certain apps.

    The privacy feature allowed users to pick and choose which personal data a third-party app can collect.

    Privacy has become an increasingly important issue as smartphones become the primary computing device for many consumers.

    Hello Ekta,
    Yes, I too read about Google removing Android privacy feature. This means that several apps which didn't require to access private content of Android app users like user location and address book details, will now be able to access such private data. The users of latest Android 4.4.2 will have to provide access to their private data in order to access certain apps.

    Thanks & Best Regards,
    Bhakti Savla
