OpenSource-Ghost I wasn't talking about Google Play Store, but Google Play Services
I was not aware that closed Google users had one without the other so was trying to make you investigate for yourself the risks of interdependent cross permissions needed to use commercial Google. Don’t start me on the huge multi billion fines imposed on Google!
Hope you took heed of the risks I linked? Dread to think of the total tally..!
MetropleX has kindly given you the short answer on specific invasive access permissions revoked by Graphene-OS – Just the reason to ditch closed commercial Google and install GOS. I did not need persuading – I used to spend hours denying this and that permission on standard phones with bundled apps; now with Graphene-OS I barely need to lift a finger. Cheers to Daniel and his GOS team
