Working with SDK Developers
The SDK, or Software Development Kit, is intended to provide functionality to application developers. However, as Google explains, sometimes it can be difficult to know when an SDK is safe to use. What Google has done is engage with SDK developers to create “a safer Android and Google Play ecosystem.” Google says SDK developers have improved the security of SDKs used by hundreds of thousands of apps impacting billions of users. “This remains a huge area of investment for our team, and we will continue our efforts to make SDKs more secure across the ecosystem,” Google said in a blog post.
Limit access to user data
Google says it has assured new platform protections and policies. He further collaborated with developers to create awareness. 98% of apps migrating to Android 11 or higher have reduced access to sensitive APIs and user data. This means that no application developer receives too much user data. Additionally, Google has reduced unnecessary, unsafe, or prohibited use of accessibility APIs in apps migrating to Android 12, while preserving functionality for legitimate use cases. Then there’s Google Play Protect, which scans billions of apps installed on billions of devices every day to protect users from malware and unwanted software.
