@cim Ha Ha. Yes I suppose it is, but at least when someone posts a message on here it usually useful and doesn't involve "my relationship is complicated!

Heh - you haven't spend much time in General Discussion yet then Smiley Happy

 

- but good tip about monitoring apps.

 

BTW another interesting approach in Android Marshmallow for those who have it yet is to go into 

 

Settings

Apps

Advanced (Cog Icon)

App Permissions

 

and see what apps have access to such things as Body Sensors, Calendar, Camera, Contacts, Location, Microphone, SMS, Storage, Telephone etc

 

- and you can switch any off that you are not happy with.
