You simply need to keep your phone on you to see all your walking, running, or exercise data being recorded by the app.


Privacy enhancements


They show three types of privacy in Miui 12, flare, barbed wire, and mask system. 

First up, Flare will keep track of the behavior of all apps on your phone and present you with a list of apps that may be out of line – violating your privacy or abusing permissions. MIUI 12 will offer you tips and suggestions to take back control in your hands.

Second, we have Barbed Wire and it builds on the privacy improvements in Android 10. You can currently choose to permanently allow or dole out one-time permission to access the camera or location in an app in Android 10. But, MIUI 12 won’t show the ‘always allow’ button if the app does not specify what it requires the permission for.

Finally, the Mask System lets users create and share virtual IDs with apps on their MIUI 12 devices. We have already seen similar implementations in Apple’s iOS 13 and Oppo’s ColorOS 7. It gives you more control over what data you want to share with an app.
