For years and years, the Play Store has been full of undesirable applications. The fine line between data collection and illegality is still present, and therefore many apps that do not contribute anything to the user, and that do everything except what they promise, are more alive than ever in our app store .
Today, we tell you the applications that you should never install on your Android phone . Currently, Android is a safe, optimized and functional system, which does not need the thousands and thousands of bullshit that we found in the app store. Do you know what we mean?
I have written innumerable times about the antivirus, and I continue to receive messages about “which antivirus I download for the phone”. The antivirus is useless in Android , it is more, they are antiproductive, since they reduce the yield of the same one, and the probability that they are collecting data on you is very high.
Although it is a recurring theme, and you may be sure that you do not have to do it, we will not tire of saying that you should never install an Antivirus on Android , we just have to be careful with the applications that we install.
3 or 4 years ago it was not a bad idea to eliminate all apps from multitasking. Basically, we lived with 1 GB of RAM , Android was a disaster managing memory, and either we closed the apps or we petaba the whole system. Today, even the lowest range has 3 or 4 GB of RAM, well managed for a couple of years now, and making it completely unnecessary to walk with optimizers. The only thing these apps do is close applications that then reopen, spending even more resources than they intend to save.
In addition, every X time there is always news, 100% predictable, that X optimizer collected data from users, what a surprise .
“I installed Greenify and my phone 2h more screen”. Come on, Tell me more, please . Currently, Doze does a great job of managing our battery at rest, and it is not worth unlocking the bootloader, root the device and install Greenify -function better with root-, to save a few minutes of screen, if the save
On the other hand, there are “ghost” applications, which really are nothing more than interfaces with a giant “save battery” green button. Again, we find that they only clean apps and close processes that will be activated again. As you see, the most popular Play Store applications are some of those that we should not install , Did you know how counterproductive they were to your mobile?
