Google has updated the Messaging app, which is the default for SMS and MMS messaging on Android smartphones.
The update can be considered one of the largest in recent years, especially given the fact that Google is very reluctant to update this application. The “Messages” now has an automatic sorting of SMS according to various topics and categories, including those with time codes and passwords that come from various sites and applications (for example, from banks).
Messages recognized by the application as one-time passwords will be deleted by the application a day after receiving. By doing so, Google hopes to protect its users from unauthorized access to their accounts.
An updated version of “Messages” is already available in some countries for smartphones based on Android version 8.0 or higher and will soon appear everywhere, including Russia. Filtering messages with categorization, if desired, can be disabled in the settings.
