Google has removed the ability of mobile phone users, using Android systems, to block apps from collecting personal information. Your address book, location, and activities are now open for anyone (read NSA, CIA, and foreign spy agencies) to track you.
Google representatives have said the feature had been included by accident in Android 4.3, which was a version released last summer. Users can stick with version 4.4.2 will need to choose between privacy or security but cannot have both. This is an intolerable position for Google to stand in, as it is the largest paid partner of the NSA for “sharing” user data.
Android software is now installed on over 80 percent of the mobile phone market.
Google has recently agreed to pay $17 BILLION to settle on its secretly installed tracking files that it placed into web browsers on their smart phones.
Android may have the most apps and be a pretty good system but with the greed in stealing the data on your every movement and even your address books you may want to question what you are doing every moment of every day.
