This is going to just deliver. I know it & # 39 s anonymous, but still it & # 39 s, sending information about the way that you use your phone to ad networks. So that they can send you more relevant advertising. Yeah, they & # 39 re collecting data on you, and so you can say.

The first thing we & # 39 re going to do is talk about Improve accuracy, use, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. For more accurate location, detection. Go ahead and turn these right off. Wi-Fi scanning and Bluetooth scanning. I & # 39 ve, seen actually a lot of posts on forums where people are saying. I turned these two settings off and I saved a ton of battery life. Yeah this- Because it & # 39 s just constantly scanning and scanning and scanning and Right. drains, your battery. Yeah and your location & # 39 s still going to work. Gps is still built into the phone. Right. You don & # 39 t need to have these things. On. [ David ]. Let & # 39 s, go back here.! Next, let & # 39 s. Talk about Google Location History.! There & # 39 s, just going to be a location history of all the places you & # 39 ve been. Yeah a little creepy.. It & # 39 s. It & # 39 s, similar to the iPhone Significant Locations where it just started. Saving a long list of all the places you & # 39 ve been Right. And it & # 39 s. Just it & # 39 s, a little weird for my taste. Tap the switch and then tap Pause near the lower right-hand corner of the screen., And now it has been paused. Perfect.

T show me this message: again. Great., Sorry, Sprint., Sorry, Sprint fix your own network. [ David ] Too late. We & # 39 re, getting bought, out., (, laughs, ). The next thing we want to talk about is restricting background data for specific apps., Like we said earlier. If an app is constantly getting new data in the background of your phone, it can drain the battery pretty quickly.. So let & # 39 s. Come back to the main page of the settings, app. And then tap on Apps.. Here you & # 39 ll, see a list of all your apps. Just go ahead and pick one. I & # 39 m, going to pick Bixby Routines. Yeah. And then I & # 39 m going to tap on Mobile data.. Here you & # 39 ll, see Restrict background data.. We & # 39 re, going to set this to Always this way. It always restricts the background data. The app is using. Right., Especially for apps that you don & # 39 t use very often set it to Always. [ David ] Yeah. It & # 39 s, going to save your cellular data plan. It & # 39 s. Also going to save your battery life., It & # 39 s, just about being intentional, about which apps you want to download content like maybe ESPN and which apps you don & # 39 t need to download content, like maybe your bank or something. [, David ], Right., The last thing we want to show you how to do is turn off, Install unknown apps for pretty much all of your apps. Mhm.. What this & # 39 ll do is, will block your apps from installing the other apps- From unknown sources. From unknown sources.? Could be ransomware. Yeah you just don & # 39 t want to end up with some malware on your Android, because some other app downloaded some other app and then ... Yeah. Avalanche, not good.. So let & # 39 s. Go back! Go back again. Now we & # 39 re on the main Apps page here and tap those three dots in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and then tap Special access. Scroll down here and tap on Install unknown apps. And pretty much just turn. This off. For everything make sure it & # 39 s, not allowed. Yeah.. If you see an app that is allowed, you can just tap on it and then you & # 39 d, say Allow from this source. If that switch was on turn, it off. A lot of the times. Apps will ask your permission if they & # 39 re allowed to do this. You just tap yes, because you & # 39 re, not paying attention and that & # 39 s. How bad things can happen. Yeah. So just go through? This is a really important security, measure. Yeah. Of course, if you & # 39 re okay with an app installing Unknown apps., The unknown apps, you can go ahead and leave it on for certain apps. But most of the time you don & # 39 t want that. Yeah.
