I run GOS on my Pixel 4a (I switched about a year ago from lineage), and I am so pleased with the experience, it's amazingly well-crafted. I have left behind all social networks and messaging apps (apart from Signal), but I can't get rid of Gmaps.
I thought Gmaps wouldn't run on my device, or that I would at least have to go through several tutorials to learn how to sandbox google services and find a way to run gmaps, but I installed it through Aurora and it runs just fine. I am obviously not logged in on any gmail account, but I was wondering if it's normal (maybe google services are sandboxed by default?) or if using gmaps on my device is a threat to privacy on my device?
Thank you for your help,
