Android ICS - disable auto login to Google accountt in browser/Youtube app?
I'm currently testing a Samsung Galaxy S III, and I'm somewhat aghast:
when I open a link in a twitter app or an email (etc), the browser starts and before it opens the link, I'm automatically signed into my gmail account?!
I asked the resident Android lover, matt and he reckons it cannot be disabled.
I asked the official Android team on Twitter, the Chrome team etc etc...all remain shtum.
Is there really no way to disable that feature? (other than by deleting my gmail account, which means I have to sign in and out of Play and the email app constantly)
What about privacy? Call me prude, but that is quite a chunk of violation imho.
When Google introduced that unified setting thing a while ago it was fairly controversial, and they had to warn users in advance. But with Android it just so happens, and I bet a lot of users don't even realise what is happening!?!
Google has just been fined for 'accidentally' (wink wink, nudge) disabling Safari's do not track feature...but no one is bothered by ICS making it impossible to use the stockbrowser without Google logging you into your account against your will?
