The best search, mail, many other services are available to users free of charge, but at the same time, bring us a good income. So Google, instead of money, takes us something else?

Exactly. We pay for the use of products of their attention and their private information. I once wrote an article about how Google collects data about us in the network. And today we will focus on another aspect of this issue, as mobile devices with Android on board spying on their hosts.

Solely for the convenience and safety of users, by itself.

Should we fear and what to do?

If you look objectively and call a spade a spade, it must be admitted that Google has successfully built the perfect global tracking system for its users.
