Re: When enough apps abuse it...

That's definitely a problem. The solution is to look at those apps and hit them hard if they don't need the data. Remove them from the play store, ban their developers, add the applications to play protect, ... The solution is not to take a feature that they abused and break it for everyone. If I find that a Linux malware has been using the root account, the solution is not to delete sudo.
