  • Settings -> System -> Multiple users. Starting with Android 14, when allowing multiple users, it is possible to specify that the guest user has access to the phone and call history, and that all guest apps and data are deleted when guest mode is exited.

Other innovations in Android 14

  • Select Permissions. Users no longer have to release all memory to an app.
  • Permission for newly installed appsthat track a schedule and have an alarm function
  • Notification of changed app permissions
  • Optimizations in two Android interfaces for better efficiency when downloading larger files or doing background activities.
  • Apps designed for Android 5.1 or older, can be no longer install. The reason is that the old APIs do not use the new security and privacy features and therefore pose a security risk. If the apps were installed before the Android 14 update, they do not pose a problem.
