All of us wants to keep our smartphone safe, secure, fast and less battery consuming.
So today I am going to discuss something related to this, most of us use many of apps in our smartphone for security purposes, for saving battery also we use battery-saving apps but we never think that's security apps asks permission for our storage, reads contacts and gets access to our privacy and battery-saving apps we use they consume battery too and increases battery consumption and many social media apps also read our contacts and even they can access our Messages. Remember in mind that you should always do your exploration and try to familiarize yourself with the app developer company before downloading that will be a nice indicator of whether or not the app is trustworthy. Look over the user comments, do an immediate Google search of the app name to look if there are any informative news about it, and compare it to other applications with a similar function.
Use common sense, and delete bad apps and never download them again.
Now I will discuss some of the apps which are not safe and good for our smartphones.
TikTok got banned in many countries by the end of 2020, TikTok the extremely popular social media app where people create and share short comedy clips, lip-sync videos, and dances. The vitriol toward TikTok which is owned and operated by Beijing-based ByteDance partially arises from accounts that the platform acutely plagues the privacy of its users, potentially departing on data to the authoritarian Chinese government. However, there hasn't been proof of any state-sponsored spying.
The reason I have put TikTok in this list is that the app does obtain a ton of user data. And while it may not be malicious, users should at least be careful, and raise a question to themselves if a social media app needs to have access to information like your hardware IDs, memory usage, the apps installed on your phone, your IP address, or your most newly used WiFi access points.
2. Social media Apps.
Most of the social media apps like Facebook, Instagram asks us to allow for reading our contacts and also asks for many other permissions and I think this is not safe for us to let them enter in our privacy and not only these kinds of app enters in our privacy but they are also very much battery consuming apps, so users should be smart and uninstall this kind of social media apps and should access their social media accounts on this platform from direct websites by searching them on Google or another search engines.
So I have uninstalled this kind of social media apps from my phone and from now onwards will access them from the direct website what about you delete them right now which will help to keep your privacy secured and help also help in less battery consumption of your phone.
3.RAM saving Apps.
Background apps reduce your RAM and use battery life, even if they are on standby. The concept behind apps that claim to boost your memory is to shut these background apps systematically. Unfortunately, this makes the problem worse. Smartphone producers like Huawei and OnePlus have learned how to kill off these apps in a better way and this well backed into their version of the Android Operating System.
Apps running in the background have to restart after you close them. Memory and battery life is used to restart the apps, and this constant closing and restarting of apps can make your phone unstable. So, these memory saving apps don’t make any sense. Again, Android manages RAM usage automatically and knows when to run an app or not, so third-party apps are not necessary.
3. Battery Saving Apps
Similar to RAM boosters, battery-saving apps are often a load of junk. These apps offer a solution to one of the most-loathed
smartphone problems in the world and promise benefits. There are only a few exceptions to the truth that battery-saving apps are merely billboards disguised as useful apps.
To increase battery life, you have to decrease energy needs from the operating system and all running services and apps. So to be helpful, energy-saving apps would need to take control of running Android. But since Android does can not be controlled without root privileges, apps available in the Play Store can’t simply step in and take control. At best, apps can advise or warn you when you’re chewing through too many Energon cubes, but that’s about it. If it closes power-hungry apps, those apps will likely automatically reopen anyway. Thus, the effect is reversed and energy consumption could increase.
4.Junk Cleaning Apps
Cleaning apps promise to clean up your phone to boost performance.
While it’s true that deleted applications sometimes leave behind some cached data, it’s not necessary to download a dedicated cleaner. Just go to Settings > Storage > and tap Cached data. At the Clear cached data prompt, hit OK.
Alternatively, you can clear the cache of individual apps by going to Settings > Apps > Downloaded and tapping on an app. On the next page, tap Clear Cache.
Clean Master and similar apps often require a lot of battery power, and their in-app advertising has likely to take a chunk out of your monthly data allowance. Remove such apps at your earliest convenience.
Weather apps became very popular at first, but it was uncovered that there were a lot of viruses in them. For example, there was a case when a weather app had an in-built trojan that collected the data from the owner's phone and sent it to the attackers. For the most part, they were interested in credit card data.
The popularity of weather apps is declining now. Instead of downloading weather apps, it's better to search for their weather on direct search engines.
