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

    For grapheneos sandboxed means the Google apps are just regular apps, they don’t have privilege, they’re not escalated, they are exactly the same as other apps. Very specifically, it means Google services are only accessible in the user/profile that they are installed in, and not phone wide

    If you use a Google service, or an app that interacts with the Google apps, then Google knows about it. In graphene OS you can choose what apps have access to Google services, by running them in a different profile.
