Exclamation =*= GPS spyware on all SGS5! =*=

Google have spyware installed on every SGS5.
It both tracks every GPS update and sends your location to GOOGLE.
And they also send all you APP info to google.

This is a screen asking for your permission to allow their SPYWARE.
This will popup everytime you start your GPS on your phone, until you press agree, then you will never see it again and I bet you cannot change it back or opt out once you agree.

There is no way to disable this, it will popup everytime you start GPS.
Same for your app, a simliar screen will popup everytime you install and app until you agree to their spyware demands.

Does anyone know more in deepth how this spyware works and how we can disable and remove it from our phones?
This is a very important matter as we barley have any privacy left nowdays.

If you know how, please help us liberate our phones from this global multibillion$ spy company tracking us like sheep.

Settings > security > verify apps. I haven't figured out how to permanently block the location one. Send it's Google services
