01 October 2020
And will also introduce some rules on how big tech compnaies can use your data.

Sort by:

Even ius treue this will make a lot ease of use in cell phones by basic ordinary people fact is google and apple will loose a lot of money and thus they will try to find other ways how to reac their typical standart they are used for.
In other words whats good for people could be even better for culprits.

Do not get me wrong, i highly appreciate people that learn or are hungry for learning and do not ignore something only because they cannot understand it... they are the most inportant to this world.

The number one reason why I now know how to root android smartphones is because I couldn't delete the FB app on my first android phone. So I had to learn everything from scratch, which later led me to shell scripting and now to java.
So in a way, bloatware on my phone made me a better person :))
Also, you can disable and even uninstall any bloatware app with adb tools on any android phone (without root), but only for the current user, not the whole phone.
The catch is that if you really want that app back, you will need to hard reset the phone.
Just search for uninstalling bloatware without root on xda forums and you'll find it.
PS Watch out for bootloops! ;)

Well, at least this is good. They should also force google to let people uninstall that crappy asistent. Not everybody needs google to profile ... aaam "assist" them. That is actually so evil, europe should bann any of them, alexa siri cortana google all. While cortana is the least evil of them all, it has potential to become one...

Far better than tyrannical governments dictating this and that, would be an intelligent population who simply won't use this kind of garbage.

Advertisment should be banned once for all. Everykind. Everywhere. No more cancer.

I dont have problems for paying for a service but unrequested ads should be illegal at every platform. Period.

Android.Master, 02 Oct 2020Puffin browser is also great. Puffin Browser is rubbish these days. I have this installed in my Android. Won't load websites everytime. Sometimes loading can be longer. Security is not what you expect compared to Tor Browser.
