    Android Permission Bypass

    Smartphones are a goldmine of sensitive data, and modern apps work as diggers that continuously collect every possible information from your devices.

    The security model of modern mobile operating systems, like Android and iOS, is primarily based on permissions that explicitly define which sensitive services, device capabilities, or user information an app can access, allowing users decide what apps can access.

    However, new findings by a team of researchers at the International Computer Science Institute in California revealed that mobile app developers are using shady techniques to harvest users' data even after they deny permissions.
