Google details Titan M custom security chip in Pixel 3

If you do cop a malware infection, Titan M stops the code from trying to unlock the bootloader and alter low-level system stuff, according to Google. Given that Apple smartphones have a wide perception of being more secure and most Android manufacturers have poor track records, Google has been pushing its Pixel devices as being superior in terms of user security, data privacy and safety.

The most significant part of that is the Titan M security chip custom built for the Pixel 3. Additionally, Titan M will decrypt the phone only after it has successfully verified your password.

The Google Pixel 3 XL is the phone for those who want a super-sized Pixel 3-and a notch.

Titan M also limits the amount of logon attempts with your passcode, helping to prevent malicious decryption. What are your thoughts on Google's proactive approach to security? Thanks to new Android 9 APIs, apps can now take advantage of hardware security modules to generate and store their private security keys.

"Here are a few ways Titan M protects your phone", Xin explains in the post. This is in addition to Google's own Pay service. It will work with apps that support e-voting and things like P2P money transfers to authenticate transactions.

As mentioned in the presentation, iFixit identified the Pixel Visual Core to be the same as the one found in its predecessors, while Google has bolstered safety with its Titan M Security chip.

The telco has announced that both the Pixel smartphones - Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have arrived on the Airtel online store. Finally, insider attack resistance prevents attackers from gaining access to the Titan M chip itself, through various security measures.
