    Hey, i need someone to help me with my privacy on my oneplus 7 pro

    I'm sick of the fact that what ever i type about i will get ads based on my typing. I've changed keyboards to anysoft keyboard. But i found that i had maps open and dirrecting me somewhere but found that i had conversations to my passenger and even got ads based on my conversation..

    Is android even safe anymore? I'm being monitored and not just for personalized ads.

    I've gone through googles privacy settings and have turned everything off related to ads and data collecting.

    Now im going through my phones permissions and i'm actually quite scared that i cant deny system apps to my location etc. Ive tried to Google some of them but i cant find much on one system app called subsdm, the search comes back with malicious apps but i couldn't actually find anything in particular regarding subdsm.

    Has my device been physically opened and had hardware changes?

    Now I know the police in my country monitor my Facebook / Facebook owned apps and my Google acounts. I want to make sure that they don't have any installed apps on my phone etc.

    I have done a factory reset and flashed the phone using software provided on the oneplus website.

    Is there some other reset or opperating system i can use so that i can deny system app permissions ?

    Also when apps have camera and mic permissions cam they use them when ever? Only because location has the option for only when all is open..

    I've attached some photos of these 'system' apps. Can someone help me secure my phone before I just bite the bullet and use iPhones again.. and is there any system apps that should have permission to display over apps, change system settings, adaptive notifications, usage access, picture in picture or WiFi controll

    Thanks in advanced,

    Ethan.

    A dual Sim wouldn't explain the two system updates, they both have different pictures and updates isnt capitalised on the second one.

    Welcome to the forums. Are you using the Parallel Apps feature for WhatsApp, Discord or any other app?
