    That's because you are creating redundant threads.... General discussions on Android Pie are to be done in the thread on which your post was merged...
    This is a forum.. Not a social media platform... Please abide by the rules and terms...
    Eventually, this thread will also be merged... Don't create another pointless thread after that...

    I'm assuming the reason Google hasn't put a higher priority on this is because you have to install a malicious app that takes advantage of this loophole to be affected. And I would hope any apps that abuse the broadcast receiver function for this reason would be promptly removed from the play store.

    that did cross my thoughts but you know how some sites don't work with adblockers? and how some sticky pop-ups make you accidentally download these apps? Maybe you and I are smart enough to take precautionary measures but someone new to Android devices won't understand that so it's a great security concern in many areas! I won't mind pointing out that even my parents don't know even 1% of Android and I don't blame them for that since they are themselves the victim of sudden technological advancements! so if a update might help save a few devices, what's the harm in that?

    These redundant members are the guys who are trying to keep the forum informative by preventing the important posts from getting buried under nonsense...
    And you are part of the community now... So act like one...

    And as mentioned above by hydrabob, it requires installation of shady apps, which can access these information, will be automatically removed from the play store... That's why even Google is least bothered...

    Sure it's a potential concern but when you bring installation from unknown sources into the equation you bring in a whole host of other possible exploits and vulnerabilities in as well. OnePlus is usually one the first to bring out new updates and the fact that every phone from the OP3 onward will eventually get Pie is a claim few other manufacturers can make. It is an interesting find and I'll probably look more into it when I get back within range of a WiFi network but as of right now it's not something I'm too terribly concerned about.
