A few months ago, Google was in the news for refusing to install a security bar for its Android operating system.
In an interview with Business Insider, Google VP of Security Brad Smith said the decision to make the bar default was made based on a security assessment of the platform, which was conducted by G4s Security.
The report concluded that the security bar was not required because it didn’t require a separate app to access.
Google has since removed the default security bar from the OS.
G4S has since issued a statement saying the company is not a security-focused vendor, and the company does not use a default security level.
“This isn’t something we do to make a phone look better, or a device faster,” G4’s VP of security Tom Luecke told The Verge.
“There are millions of phones on the market, and most of them don’t have a default level.”
The company’s security bar is a feature that makes it easy to access certain settings, such as how many times you have to log in to access your device.
Google’s security bars were introduced in Android 4.0, but they were not always widely used.
A number of users were complaining about security bars in Google’s Android OS, and it was later revealed that some users had mistakenly disabled their security bar altogether.
Google says the security bars have since been added to the Google Chrome browser, Chrome OS, Chrome and Google Play Store.
