[deleted] Does anyone here have sandboxed google play store installed on their owner profile for convenience?
My guess is that a lot of users do, perhaps thousands. Many users simply want a more secure Android device, with the added ability to have fine-grained control over their apps, while otherwise using it like any other phone.
Personally, I don't have Play Services or Store installed anywhere on my phone. It's down to personal preference, and that's just one of the beauties of GrapheneOS.
