Hi,

I recently changed from Iphone to Samsung Galaxy S5.
I know for Iphone there were some settings to change immediately (f.e. that data was transmitted to 3rd parties)
What should I change on a Samsung Galaxy S5?

Please advise.
J.

In Android, there's no such setting. You decide it per app if you find the permissions acceptable or not.
The only thing close to it is the Location settings, but those are also no transmitted to 3rd party, and stays within your Google account.
