  • When an app uses the camera or microphone, a green dot is displayed on the right side of the status bar, so you can immediately know which app is shooting or recording without your consent. You can temporarily block camera and microphone permissions for all apps in the quick settings window.
  • You can manage apps that use location information more precisely. For apps that don’t require your exact location, such as a weather app, you can use the service by sharing your approximate location.
  • You can set to send a notification when other apps access important information such as passwords and credit card numbers when copied to the clipboard.

For some apps, after updating to One UI 4, each app needs to update itself.
