<p style=Google wants to renew the traditional method of how to unlock our smartphone,since many of us ignore putting a PIN or Unlocking Pattern due to the loss of time this function does to us. Therefore, the great “G”take a giant step including Smart lock which consists of adding a pairing either Bluetooth or NFC with a device compatible with this technology in order to skip the above procedures. And also the facial unlocking has been improved.

Factory Encryption

Other characteristics is, the factory or serial encryption, that is that nothing more to turn on our terminal with the new version of Android 5.0 is to use a unique code making it impossible to hack it. This function was already implemented in the previous versions but as an option in phone settings.


Google explains how it is being used Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux) to improve application security.Basically, Android 5.0 requires enforcing modeSELinux for all applications on their devices, and this means that they have less room for maneuver for an attack of malware.

Selinux news

For me a very well-kept job is what Google is doing with this very renewed version Of course, but not all that glitters is gold, it is not just that everything is Material Design, but there are more aspects that need to be improved, as security has been in this case, how good nothing can be done against thieves but with new functions will prevent them from getting confidential information.
