Guys.

I just realized there is a new feature on my phone.
I never allowed it to be installed, phone never asked if I wanted it and I have all updates turned off. All updates!
Stock, no root, Jan 2020 firmware.
You can find in under settings/google and it will be the very first position.
What is that?
How do I remove it?
It's something that was being developed months ago, it makes your device search for devices in the background periodically for potentially COVID-19 infected people.
If someone is infected, they have to report it on their phone and it flags other users around if you're near someone who had/has COVID-19 or not.
It uses Bluetooth

How can you be so sure? How do you know it doesn't work in the background anyway?

How can you be sure little green aliens are not running the world? Do you have Bluetooth on ? do you track what data you receive on Bluetooth? its a framework module...not a secret conspiracy to take over the world... ( again )

Its a framework. That means, apps sit on top on the frame ... like building a house, you need a base ( frame ) . This " Base" lets others build whatever house they want on top ... the actual "base" does nothing, how do I know... its a framework. if you are so paranoid, stop all you're google, amazon frameworks and see what happens, spoilers, your phone won't work. Next, stop all the frameworks in windows if you use that .. spoilers, it won't work ....then put everything into a box and leave it there

    If you want to live life without being tracked, I suggest you move to Mars.

    its a framework, it needs an app to work with it to be of any use . without the app from your local country etc it does nothing.
