Android 12 lets IT admins disable USB data signaling to improve security

Published

Android 12

Along with all the new Android 12 features, Google is introducing some enterprise-focused changes to the software release. With these changes, the company aims to make Android a more reliable and secure operating system by giving enterprise and IT admins access to additional privacy controls and additional security measures.

One of these features gives IT administrators the option to disable USB data on business devices to improve security. According to a recent post on Google’s key blog, Android 12 will give IT admins the opportunity to decide which input system (IMEs) staff can use to reduce the risk of third-party keyboard capture data on the device.

They will also find the option to disable USB signaling for anything other than charging to reduce the risk of USB-based attacks.

However, this feature will only be available on devices with USB HAL 1.3. Google specifies that device administrator applications will need to call canUsbDataSignalingBeDisabled to check whether enabling or disabling USB data signing is supported on the device.

In addition, IT admins will have the option to “slice their 5G network and dedicated connectivity to all apps on a fully-managed device, or specifically to apps in the work profile.” This will allow enterprises to limit priority cell service to Work profile apps and give them more “control over the quality of service and security of work data.”

Android 12 will also include a few other enterprise-focused features, including options for approving or rejecting permissions related to personal devices and setting up Wi-Fi networks with a new network API that does not require user location permissions. In addition, Android 12 also changes the hardware IDs of their devices.

PUBG: New State, the upcoming free mobile game, will be released on Android and iOS on November 11, its publisher Krafton announced today. The game is set for 2051 and will provide a futuristic take on the multi-player PUBG formula with new features such as customizable weapons and in-game drones. New State will be available in more than 200 countries and in 17 languages ​​when it is launched.

New State is a major launch of the PUBG series, which has made it popular with the genre of war after the launch of its first title in 2017. Although New State isn’t its first mobile entry, following the launch of PUBG Mobile in 2018, produced by the original creator of the game, PUBG Studios. The development of the original PUBG Mobile was largely handled by Chinese tech giant Tencent.

PUBG Studios features that New State will come up with “powerful anti-cheating” methods when it is launched and that the company will be actively monitoring the public to address problems before they escalate.

PUBG Games has had major problems with fraudsters in the past, with Motherboard reporting earlier this year that one cheating party allegedly made more than $70 million by selling PUBG Mobile. PUBG is far from the game that has had these problems. Other companies such as Activision and Valve have made headlines recently in their efforts to prevent cheating in their games and hardware, respectively.

Like previous PUBG games, New State is focused on multiplayer games. Up to 100 players enter the map, and one player or team emerges victorious. There will be four maps available for launch in New State, including the franchise staple Erangel, with PUBG Studios promising to update it regularly with new content over time.

Apart from the mobile phone, Krafton plans to release another PUBG-related game for PC and console next year, Bloomberg reported in January. There are also plans for a new horror game set in the PUBG universe over the next three hundred years, which will be released in 2022.
