I don't see an issue with +Google
's post. There isn't any doubt that if you've taken the time to read the post and place a comment then you have the ability to do what +Google has suggested. If you think an app shouldn't have the permissions it's requesting then don't install it. It really is that simple.
If you want to be on the safe side then only download apps that have the top developer logo. That little blue diamond thingy. If that's what you're doing then I can understand being upset with +Google about this.
be scanning each and every app submitted to the store, marketplace, or whatever they call at the time you read this. Probably so. However you know that they don't and you still make the choice to use the app store/marketplace so it inevitably falls on you. Take responsibility. And stop all this back and forth about all the minor stuff.+Kelmend Celaj
(below) "If we are, for argument's sake installing apps strictly from trusted sources like Google Play Store, we should not have to worry about rogue apps." There is no argument. I mentioned that and agreed with you before hand.
Anything aftermarket is your fault.
