    Hello, all.

    I downloaded opensignalmaps. Seems like a neat tool to show the direction and strength of your signal (cellular and WiFi).

    What is confusing is what settings you should allow. Do you suggest allowing data share or no data sharing? What settings will noticeably slow down the phone in general with apps?

    Also, I noticed a few apps run in the background. When do you have too many apps that will affect performance?

    Can you trust any app that Google Play offers?

    Please forgive my lack of experience and novice questions.

    Thank you.

    Steve

    I believe data sharing refers to whether you are willing to share the information from your phone with their services. I think it is one way they get updated cell tower information.

    To answer your question about trusting every APP in the PS, the answer is indeed no you can not. You have to be careful and check other reviews and see what kind of permissions they are asking for. Google tries to weed out malicious APPS the best they can but can't catch them all.
