    Google last week during its I/O event described security tweaks that are part of its upcoming Android O operating system, which is expected to be released later this year.

    New features are Project Treble and a new permission standard around the feature called Instant App. Also to be introduced with Android O are important hardening of existing security features tied to core Android components such as System Alerts, device permissions and verified boot, said mobile security experts. Google also announced a makeover of its security platform it now calls Google Play Protect.

    “In Android O there are going to be some big changes that will affect app developers directly and also that end-users and device manufacturers will benefit from by proxy,” Blaich said.
