Not if you do not have administration rights and can handle this somehow in that way. Damit i'm rooted.
I know i can't be 100% save. And it also not only against google.
It is also against all the other Apps which want your contacts and all other data which they want but which is not nesessary for an App to work.
I'm already restricting a lot with XPrivacy.
And from the Aluminuim Helmet i am still far away
But the useless collection of data annoys me.
Actually i have nothing to hide.
But i do it out of protest. And because i do not need most of the features which track me, give me advertising and other Bull****. I like it minimal (maybe i should buy not a smartphone, but without that i cant be on XDA ^^)
But it is not you who decides if you have something to hide or not. I even do not use Payback cards
