Re: A Difference

Google don't need to hack your phone, they already own it. (if it's Android)

What they do regularly do is install malware. New Google apps get installed by default whether you want them or not and they want permission to access everything. It is starting to really piss me off. I don't want any of the apps Google has installed without my permission but because they are Google apps you can't remove them, only remove the patches leaving you with a worse security nightmare than the one you are trying to avoid. At this pont I think there's more Google apps I don't use on my phone than ones I do use.
