Got my daughter a new tablet yesterday

Have been repeatedly pestered during the setup to sign up for the manufacturers own app to provide very slight benefits on warranty and some very iffy sounding self-cloud storage.

All for the price of my daughter (who's under 10) name, DOB, contact details, IMEI and GPS info.

No thanks, oddly enough it's a pain to remove these sorts of apps, it's even built into the damn settings menu.
