F-Droid is an alternative app store that only carries apps that respect your privacy.
To install it, go here on your Android phone:
Click on Download F-Droid to start. (You may need to allow installation of unknown apps, either when prompted or in settings.)
@switchingsocial And if you install the priviledge extensions, it can even auto update itself and apps installed from it. No more temporarily enabling "unknown sources" when installing/updating via f-droid 😀
@switchingsocial For android 8.1 I had to install an alternative file browser app and give it permissions to install from unknown sources (couldnt allow default file app). Then used that file browser to install fdroid. then gave f-droid permission to install unknown. seems like they make it harder and harder each version.
Thanks for the warning. Do you think this is a deliberate policy by Google? 😟
