Utmost Mobile Security for low budget phones with Android 10 Go

Google which offered a preview of Android Q in March this year has renamed it as Android 10 and has been testing its beta versions on its home grew Pixel phones. The internet juggernaut and the subsidiary of the Alphabet Inc have now released an Android 10 Go Edition for budget-friendly phones on Wednesday and has announced that the software will not only make mobile phones faster but will also add more security to users.

For those phones which are running with a 1.5GB RAM and less memory, Google plans to target them with Android 10 Go Edition. As the new operating system is super light allowing apps to run 10% faster, it is said to make switching between apps super fast.
As such phones do not have the hardware to protect data in the silicon chips, Google is said to offer its Android 10 Go edition with cryptographic encryption named Adiantum.

This AES range storage encryption algorithm will ensure that the sensitive data on the device remains secure from prying eyes likes spying malware.

Note 1- Adiantum is exclusively devised for Android 9 and above phones whose CPUs lack AES instructions.

Note 2- In high-end phones such as Apple iPhones, Samsung Galaxy series and Pixel, a dedicated encryption chip is available on-board which keeps data such as phone locking information and other data needed securely.

Note 3-Android 10 Go is developed for those devices which have less memory and energy to operate which are general features available on entry-level smartphones.
