    Google Play Services update will soon strip unused apps of their permissions

    Not sure what this means when implemented. Can you re-enable the seldom used apps? I have a lot of apps that are seldom used, and would not want to loose them. Some are loaded from .apk files because the Play Store stopped listing them.

    You won't lose the apps. The apps will lose permissions. Which I'd think can be re-enabled but Idk for sure.

    All this is - is a security feature.

    Do you want an app you use once every 5 years to be able to track your every move, access/change your contacts, use bg data, and/or place calls on your device for you?

    All this does is remove those apps ability to do things in the bg that you had no idea it was doing the entire time. It doesn't remove the apps from your phone, just restricts what they can do without your knowledge.
