Google developers are actively working on enhancing data privacy for Android users. A recent development in the pipeline involves introducing additional permission management settings for individual websites on the mobile version of the Chrome browser.
One-Time Permissions for Improved Control
In the latest build of Chrome Canary for Android, an insider known as Leopeva64 uncovered a notable innovation. This feature introduces one-time permissions for sites seeking access to user data, such as location information. Remarkably, this mirrors the functionality available in the desktop version of the browser.
Streamlined User Control through Pop-Up Dialogues
Upon a site’s request for access, a pop-up window will appear at the center of the device screen. Users will be presented with three options: “Allow this time,” granting access for the current session only; “Allow every visit,” for frequent and active site use; and “Do not allow,” denying access under any circumstances, notes NIXSolutions.
While the innovation is currently in the testing phase, its integration into the stable version of the Android Chrome browser remains uncertain.
