Android devices pass sensitive user data such as phone serial numbers and application usage information to manufacturers.

Such as Samsung and third parties such as Google, Microsoft, and Facebook.

According to the research, Google’s Android-owned variants developed by popular vendors such as Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, and Realme send a great deal of information.

It is for those manufacturers and third-party companies whose apps come pre-installed on these devices.

Device-identifying data continues to be transmitted even after the consumer disables this application.

The study found that data silently collected by companies is linked to identifiers such as a device’s IMEI code.

On the other hand, information about people’s interests can also be collected.

Google is said to collect a list of all the apps installed on the phone, which raises privacy concerns because the list contains sensitive information that includes users’ interests.

During a test on a Samsung mobile phone, the researchers also found that the device’s Google advertising ID was stored on Samsung’s servers.
