Thank you for taking the time and replying, I really appreciate it.
You are correct, I do like the ability to customize my device, for example blurring the app previews for when I'm showing something on my device and switching between applications.
I would purchase a privacy screen protector but unfortunately they are not available here unless shipped from abroad(which is very costly)
The 'security and privacy > How is disk encryption implemented?' section in GOS website FAQs briefly talks about secondary profile allowing putting it at rest without rebooting the device. I was wondering if someone can clarify it a little more especially in terms of triggering the rest state using intents or commands etc. That would enable me to use a secondary profile mainly, which I can log out of when needed instead of rebooting the device. This is mainly to avoid enabling ADB access for Tasker after every reboot. But there are other reasons as well.
Ideally I would like to have all the apps in there respective profiles.
That pure black dark theme question was unrelated to GOS discussions or privacy and security in general. Just left it in case anyone likeminded tinkered with it in the past.
This term often comes up so I will elaborate it in case someone needs to know. My 'threat model' is more about dying without leaving a trace of my activities for anyone in my relatives who comes in contact with my device. I understand about the government surveillance and I frankly could not care less about what ads they show me from my Google searches. I do not keep sensitive data on my daily driving devices. That is why I am more concerned about making my device a brick rather than going to big corporations and asking them to delete my logged activity. In general I do not give my data to them willy nilly. But at the same time they are much less important to me than the people that surround me.
GOS has given me some piece of mind. Now there are just a few loose ends I'd like to take care of.
