Google: Less than 1% of Androids had security issues in 2014

Understand how the Device Protection feature of Android Lollipop 5.1 works

With each new Android update, we always come across a number of improvements, bug fixes and optimizations in general. Some enhancements are implemented as a native feature and are always welcome as they add more functionality to the system. With the announcement of the new version of Android Lollipop, the arrival of the Device Protection feature has proven that the 5.1 update is far more important than expected.

<p>The new feature titled Device Protection offers a higher level of security than we already know how to remotely wipe the device in case of theft. According to Google, protecting a device ensures that the device is fully cleaned even if a <em>reset </em>to factory settings. If the device is lost, stolen, or stolen, the Google account verification requirement for the logged in user will ensure that the device becomes unusable if the data is not verified. The new function has its merits, because even if the device is rooted or reset, the obligation to confirm data remains active.</p>
<p>Security company COSOSYS has defended the feature introduced in Android Lollipop 5.1 and believes that along with the encryption present in the system theft of devices will be unstable over time. According to CEO Roman Foeckl, Google is expected to continue to strengthen and increase security options in the upcoming versions of Android as the company plans to expand its presence in the corporate market as well.</p><div class='code-block code-block-3' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

Initially only Nexus 6 and 9 devices support the new feature, although it was announced natively in the system, being within reach of the next devices that receive the update.

And what do you think of the new function and how it can increase the security of your device?
