Upcoming changes to Google Drive integration (POSTPONED)
Taking the risk of getting off-topic: I do not agree.

It is good that Google tries to make Android more secure. But I, as the (perceived) owner of the device, should be in control what level of security I want to have applied. Many 'security enhancements' that Google added to Android in the past years are seriously getting in the way of certain workflows and there is no way to disable them (except by rooting the device).

Neither can I control what information apps (or the system!) can exchange with third parties. Doesn't sound secure to me.

Quote:Perhaps some users don't care if someone would steal their downloaded pdfs from their outdated leaking hardware but think of creators with precious/sensitive data.

That's why I said the owner of the device should be in control what level of security she want to have applied. And it is okay to sell the devices with max security enabled so that naive creators with precious/sensitive data are protected but please do not get in the way of me using my device.

Ironically, those users with precious/sensitive data are quite likely to never make backups...
