In order to prevent malware-laced apps from infecting the Android ecosystem, Google formed the App Defense Alliance (ADA) back in 2019 in collaboration with leading cybersecurity companies.
Initially, Google, Zimperium, ESET, and Lookout were the three major internet security companies that created ADA. With the addition of Microsoft and Meta to the steering committee, it has expanded significantly since then.
The ADA has expanded its list of members to include more companies like Schellman, PWC (PricewaterhouseCoopers), McAfee, Leviathon Security Group, NCC Group, Netsentries, Cyberdefense, Presicient Security, MicroTrend, and KPMG. OnePlus and Oppo, its sister company, have now joined the alliance.
To provide the best coverage for user privacy, it should be mentioned that the most recent OnePlus 12 series has Device Security Engine 3.0, an enhanced Security Center, Strong Box chip-level encryption, Auto Pixelate 2.0, and Photo Management Permission settings.
By joining ADA, OnePlus will have a chance to collaborate with leading figures in the cybersecurity sector to create cutting-edge technology for early detection and removal of malware and other online risks to device users.
“The foundations of OnePlus products are user privacy and information security, as we are a community-driven business. Our partnership with ADA will strengthen our commitment to these values. Our proactive approach in this collaboration is a reflection of our commitment to strengthening application software against constantly changing cyberthreats. Kinder Liu, President and COO of OnePlus, stated, “We are ready to establish new standards in application safety and privacy protection alongside our ADA peers.”
In related news, the recently revealed OnePlus 12 can now be bought on Amazon, at the OnePlus shop, and at approved retail locations all over India.
In Delhi earlier this month, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R, the company’s brand-new flagship phones.
The 6.8-inch Quad HD+ curved AMOLED display on the OnePlus 12 is included. It has an in-display fingerprint sensor, a proprietary Display P1 chip, support for up to 4500 nits of peak brightness, and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection.
