Am new user with pixel 6a. All good so far - installation easy, phone not getting hot etc.
It all seems to offer what I wanted - phone calls, texts, occasional internet access and privacy - no desire for social media, games, youtube etc.
Only app I might want as extra is an ordnance survey mapping app that clearly would need location ON.
If I choose to install I think I'll need sandboxed Google Service etc - have tried installing APK but can't get that to work.
However - with privacy in mind - would likely set up such an app in a second user profile.
Thats OK - but can someone explain the apparent difference when turning LOCATION ON in Owner Profile as against 2nd User Profile.
With the OWNER Profile (and before installing any extra app) - App location permissions state 0 of 4 apps have access to location. (the 4 are Camera,Gallery,Phone and Vanadium)
If I switch to 2nd user profile (nothing extra installed) and turn on LOCATION - the default position says 3 of 7 apps have access to location - the 4 not allowed are as above.
FUSED LOCATION is "allowed all the time"
Settings and "com.google.android.iwlan" are "allowed only while in use".
Am not clear what "FUSED LOCATION" and com.google.android.iwlan" are used for - and why they appear as default in "2nd User Profile" and NOT Owner Profile.
Grateful if someone can explain their purpose, why the difference between profiles - was expecting the default pixel/graphene would not involve google (and google would only "appear" if I choose to let it in eg sandbox)
