Android 12, Google explains how Private Compute Core works

Android 12

Among the many innovations introduced by Android 12 we find a series of more or less unprecedented features related to privacy. The most important is the introduction of indicators for the use of the camera and microphone, the presence of which, in reality, is now almost taken for granted.

It is more difficult to explain the usefulness of Private Compute Core, a feature that it remains a bit of a mystery, also given the not particularly suggestive name. The same users of Android 12 do not know what it is specifically: well, these days, Google itself has decided to intervene to dispel any doubts.

Initially it was thought that Private Compute Core was linked to virtualization, while instead - they say from Google - it is an innovative sandbox that allows you to run apps, processes and system modules in isolation. The function itself changed its name during the Android 12 beta from “Android System Intelligence” to its current “Private Compute Core”.

if (jQuery ("# ​​crm_srl-th_mobilelabs_d_mh2_1"). Is (": visible")) {console.log ("Edinet ADV adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_mobilelabs_d_mh2_1 slot id: th_mobilelabs_d_mh2"); } In a nutshell, Private Compute Core allows the user to protect their sensitive data from attack by malicious software.

The full intervention of the Google developer is available below. Inside, Dianne Hackborn definitively clarifies that Private Compute Core is not related to running virtual machines, but is simply a system that helps to customize the experience of using Pixels (and not only) by preserving the data entered in the forms. . In any case, storage is ultra-secure, as the number of authorizations is limited and access to the network is prevented.

Hackborn also specifies that this feature is not exclusive to Pixels, but is available for all Android smartphones. The comment in question was posted on XDA Developers this fall and then picked up recently by editor and tech enthusiast Mishaal Rahman. You can read the full version reported in the tweet below:

No more guessing, we finally have confirmation of what the Pixel's "Private Compute Core" in Android 12 actually does.
