How to Use Your Phone’s Privacy-Protection Tools ?
Are you concerned about how applications and websites utilize your data? If you’re an iPhone user, you know that Apple’s built-in privacy tools for the iPhone are pretty good. Unfortunately, Android devices have these tools, too, but not nearly as good.
But no matter what kind of phone you have, be sure to use your privacy-protection tools.

1.Manage your Google account

You can protect your privacy through your Google account. First off, you can just not use Google services. But if you do, you have to be very careful with what information you fill out and sync. You also have to be careful with what happens when you delete your account.

2.Restrict app permissions

When you download a new app, you’re also permitting it to access all the areas of your phone—contacts, photos, text messages, and so on. This means that, at a minimum, most apps should request permission to modify the contacts and call log.

3.Share your estimated location

The location services function on your phone can determine your exact position on a map, which is useful for things like offering driving instructions. However, with the latest iOS and Android versions, you may share an estimated location rather than a specific one for a little more privacy.

4.Stop websites tracking you

Don’t use “cookies,” which are small pieces of code that track your online activities, and install Chrome and Firefox browsers to block them. In Android 12, go to Settings and then click Privacy to get a variety of settings, including the Advertising option, which allows you to prevent targeted ads by erasing your Advertising ID.
With more functions on the mobile phones, we often leave relevant mobile privacy in the process of using them. When our mobile phone is lost, or there is a problem with our mobile phone, our privacy will be leaked. Therefore, the privacy needs to be properly protected.
