Hi! What would be the best way to limit play serbices to only selected apps. I still need notifications to work from them, but would like to be sure that google can’t access anything else

      So if I have two profiles, one with and one without play services and the profile with play services is not active, there’s no active pinging and telemetry going on?

        If the profile with Google services is quiesced like suspending your work profile, then no activity should be seen on the network at all. No keep alive no pings etc

        Truthfully, I’m not sure. There is a way to get notifications from a second profile when on the main profile so I stands to reason there is something happening on the second profile. I don’t use a second profile so I can’t give a first hand account. It’s why I posted the link for reference.

      That is a great rundown, thanks! How would I install them on a different custom rom? Upon installing their “apps” store, i can’t see the google play services (this might be because I’m currently on stock)

        Sandbox Google Play is just for GrapheneOS. As far as I know, doesn’t work anywhere else.
