Protecting Your Smartphone from Theft: Google Releases Enhanced PIN Privacy Feature in Android 13 QPR3 Beta 2
Are you worried about thieves stealing your smartphone and accessing your sensitive information? One common tactic they use is to watch you enter your PIN and then quickly steal your device. They can even try to change your Google Account or Apple ID password before you can stop them. And if you use the same PIN for banking apps, they could easily steal your money.
But Google has just released a new feature in Android 13 QPR3 Beta 2 that could help protect your privacy. This feature hides your PIN when you enter it, preventing anyone from seeing it. To access this feature, go to Settings > Security & privacy > Device lock > Screen lock > Enhanced PIN privacy. Unfortunately, users of other smartphone models may have to wait until Android 14 for this feature to become available. Don’t wait until it’s too late – protect your smartphone today!
