128bitpotato As I understand GOS also makes it smoother to create and use different profiles. Would a good use case be to group different, more privacy invasive apps, together in separate profiles?
I don't have use for them yet myself, but yes it is very easy to create additional profiles as needed for further app isolation. I think that what you're proposing is a pretty common workflow among many GOS users.
Amazon in it's own profile, android auto/waze in it's own profile and maybe some other "necessary" apps in another? Some apps I still have a hard time giving up, but want to minimize tracking as much as possible.
If minimizing tracking is a goal, I would avoid network-based location/navigation apps, especially commercial endeavors that are built around advertising and analytics. I would also avoid dedicated shopping apps if a website can suffice instead.
Generally speaking, every additional app you install on your phone increases the attack surface and the potential for loss of privacy. For those seeking privacy, consideration should be given as to whether an app is actually needed or merely a convenience (and whether that convenience is worth it).
