Google Is Working On Launching An Innovative Private Space Safeguard For Extra Sensitive Apps

It can be said without any doubt that there are a plethora of apps across the Android interface available for use. However, not all can be trusted out in the open and need extra safeguards in place to ensure complete protection.

Thanks to a new Android preview, we’re getting more information about how Google is well aware of this ordeal and is therefore working hard in terms of rolling out top-of-the-line safeguards to ensure complete privacy at all times.

Dubbed Private Space, the feature is curated to keep extra sensitive apps in check at all times.

We know that it’s just too common to wish to have your apps on Android in disguise at all times. Moreover, there are a plethora of launchers giving rise to such ordeals that try to make sure the app is hidden from any kind of onlookers that may have ill intentions.

Moreover, Samsung and others are even offering ways to allocate such apps into a hidden space, and it’s built into the system. Therefore, this ensures that the user is safe at all times and their privacy is maintained even if their device lands up in the hands of someone else.

Thanks to the launch of the Android 14 QPR2 Beta 2, we know more about how Google is making the way for replies to apps that are in disguise through the latest talk of the town called Private Space.

As per the text seen in the introductory message, users are invited to use the feature that arises as a default in the system via a new icon that’s usually seen at the bottom of their apps tab. And if you really want to work in Dark Mode, you can hide this feature from users’ view. But in case you do choose to go in this direction, you’ll be required to generate a search to look for it, so that it can pop up.

There might even be a Quick Settings option for both locking as well as unlocking purposes.

The search engine giant just rolled out a little preview of how the innovative feature works and by the looks of it, there are no complaints so far. And one of the biggest benefits in this regard has to do with its design into the whole Android system as apps won’t disappear only via the launcher.

Furthermore, even the Android settings, permissions manager, and more will not unveil the apps in disguise from user view, until and unless the feature is unlocked at the start. And in case that was not enough, alerts arising from any apps that are not hidden will fail to appear guaranteeing more security and privacy across the board.

Lastly, users can benefit from the most convenience by locking this feature through the same passcode utilized for logging into their Android device. But if you give that security code to anyone, they’ll attain complete access to any apps designated as hidden.

We hope to see this launch soon, perhaps Android 15 would be our best bet.
