The smartphone needs from time to time to perform a cleanup of applications and information that the user may not need, which takes a large amount of memory, and may cause damage that the user cannot know its impact.
The German technology portal “Mobil Zescher.d” showed some tips and instructions for cleaning the smartphone and checking the permissions of the applications:
Cleaning Android applications
To clean smart phones equipped with the Android operating system, the user can through the settings and then go to applications and then all applications “(Settings / Apps / All Apps), and choose to remove applications that were not used in 2019, as this saves memory space and maintains battery charge .
For applications that cannot be uninstalled, they can be disabled at least.
In addition, the user must verify the permissions of the applications, and fear should not leak to the user with every query from the device, even if the applications claim that they are in urgent need of these permissions.
The German portal indicated that it is better not to change the permissions of “Google Play Store” or “Google Play Service” as well as the application “Android System Web View” but with the remaining applications it is necessary to check the permissions granted to them.
The German Technologies Portal recommends installing a secure data browser for Android phones such as Mozilla Firefox or Firefox Fox (Focus) and the secure version.
Initially, the user must configure the browser properly, including installing useful additional tools, such as Cookie AutoDelete, which initially allows cookies to be set, for websites to run smoothly, and then immediately removes them, Additional tools can be found under “Add-ons” in the browser’s menu bar.
Usually all apps are listed in the settings menu, and here the same rule applies; where the user has to remove the applications that were not used during 2019, and the app permissions can be checked in the settings menu as well; all permissions should be deleted if they seem unreasonable, or It has not been used for a long time, or if it has never been needed, such as access to the site.
The Safari browser is the default browser for your iPhone smartphone and other mobile devices, and through Firefox Fox’s Tracking Protection functionality, browser functionality can be improved.
To use this function, the user must download the “Focus” application from the application store, then open the browser and merge this function with it, and then you must open the device settings menu and go to Safari, and then “Continent Blockers” and then activate the Fox (Safari / Content Blockers / Activate Focus).
