Nowadays all apps ask for **full network access / read network list. All free and paid apps want internet.
I spent three days looking for an office suite for android which didn’t want to use internet. Unsuccessful.
Even the alpha libreoffice viewer wanted internet. “offline dictionaries”, Picture viewers
… and the list goes on
Is rooting, flashing aosp, firewalling and disabling network access for apps the only way to avoid apps to track me?
I wish there was a trusted repository of apps (uptodown is not a trusted one) versions so I could filter those that require internet.
