@gopiandcode @verretor because I was having the phone open for installs from non officialsources, so it was tied to that app
@btcdragonlord @gopiandcode Non-official source include any source. Not just F-Droid. Like you could install an APK from anywhere.
@verretor @gopiandcode But I only installed stuff from F-Droid, and I saw with my own fucking eyes what happened, think I am lying?
@btcdragonlord @gopiandcode I think the reason Android blocks non-official sources by default is a security feature. Deactivating it makes you more prone to such attacks.
@verretor @gopiandcode Fuck F-Droid then, it is a spyware gateway.
@btcdragonlord @gopiandcode It has nothing to do with F-Droid. You can block non-official sources and only allow them when you install/update apps from F-Droid.
Also, don't forget to do security updates regularly.
@verretor @btcdragonlord @gopiandcode Security updates regularly? When my phone doesn't even allow those?
@karozagorus @btcdragonlord @gopiandcode Your phone doesn't allow security updates?
@verretor @karozagorus @gopiandcode My last security update was from 2017.
@btcdragonlord @karozagorus @gopiandcode That's how you got spyware on your phone.
@verretor @karozagorus @gopiandcode It was still a turkish application.
@btcdragonlord @karozagorus @gopiandcode I haven't done a security update in 4 years.
