Android Pay is finally rolling out in Canada via Play Store

These flaws with the permissions end up putting Android users at a higher risk for malware, adware, and ransomware.

If you have an Android device, then you are probably aware of the issues and flaws in the Android permissions. But in order to add even stricter measures to this screen overlay functionality, the next Android O OS will be dialed back thus reducing the phishing threat on Android devices.

Among the steps Google took were "updating our policies and enforcement on OAuth applications, updating our anti-spam systems to help prevent campaigns like this one, and augmenting monitoring of suspicious third-party apps that request information from our users", he said. "However, this soon caused problems, as this permission is also used by legitimate apps, such as Facebook, which requires it for its Messenger chat heads feature", Check Point wrote in a blog post. As spotted by Android Police, gone is the shopping bag that served as a reminder of the Android Market, which is the name that the Play Store went by before it was the Play Store. Unlike the other permissions, to grant it, the user must go through several menus (Settings - Apps - Draw over other apps) and manually allow an app to use it. But left out the essential Google Play Store.

Android O will likely be shown off in beta form next week at the Google I/O conference, but the full release traditionally doesn't begin until late fall.

Google unveiled its first developer preview of Android O on March 21.
