MIUI 11 adds a new function that will notify us of any suspicious activity on your smartphone

In recent years we have been seeing how access to certain permissions by Android applications has become a very sensitive issue. Without going any further, our smartphone has become the main center of personal data and the place where more private information is stored about us.

That is why Xiaomi has begun to deploy « Behavior Records «, a new function for MIUI 11 that allows us to have greater control of the applications, informing in detail of any permission obtained by each of them.

With this new functionality Xiaomi seeks to let its users know if they are really granting more permissions than necessary to a given application . And it is that thanks to this new option within MIUI, we will know if we are granting too sensitive or dangerous permissions in order to maintain our privacy.

A complete record of each permit or data obtained by the applications

This new functionality is being deployed in the first place through the Chinese ROM of MIUI 11. In detail, we could translate its operation as a complete record of the behavior of each of the applications that we have installed on our smartphone.
