This app is a major invasion of privacy! I did not install this myself. It must have installed with an update, but now it is constantly turning on my location (which I keep turned off). It is draining the battery with background use. It has crazy permissions somehow automatically granted to it that I cannot turn off, and the best part is there is no way to delete it from my phone! The disable button is greyed out, and I can't unistall it through Google play until I disable it on my phone.

I think it kiiinda sucks actually.. optimal performance of our cellies are so reliant on Play Services maintaining its stability. We're at its mercy, really.. and it's always made me feel.. idk, nervous. You can't really put ANY of your own knowledge towards it, and so it's gonna do what it's gonna do. Never been a fan of the uhh, "behind the curtain"-like feeling it gives off. More so than any other system apps that are required for a phone to work. Our info, our livelihood at risk every day

This is an unfortunate nessary evil application. It does allot of things that are very important to your phone's security and stability. Yes, the permissions are very wide, but how else would it be able to find problems? If you wanted privacy why you bought an Android phone is a question you should ask yourself? There are plenty of encrypted phone's & operating systems. Don't expect Google to not collect data. Its how they work. Its no secret either. I agree, everything should be opt in!
