- Android OS without Google Services? 2 answers
I don't like the idea that my personal information are gathered and by some company that make profit out of processing and selling it (or even when it has a possibility to do so). And yes, that's the reason I don't use Facebook and gmail (after reading their TOC).
I wonder if it's possible to use the Android smartphone without Google account at all in a long time?
So far I know that:
- I don't use gmail/google+/chrome, so I don't bother about it.
- I cannot download application from Google Play without Google account, but I can download most of them as .apk and install manually.
Did I miss something? Or it's possible to live with Android without Google account?
p.s. Does Google still collect any data about me, even when I just use Android, without Google account and without gmail/google+/youtube?
