I want to COMPLAIN but Google doesn't have any contact sources and apparently all there is is a community made up of non-google employees - I want to complain about the stealth download of this tracking service - I know I'd still need to download the app to activate it but that is NOT the point - Google have installed this service without my permission - surely a class action is in order? Are these big corporations able to do whatever they want? I'll be deleting ALL Google products from my 2 phones and 4 PCs and tablet

UK - it's installed under google services - are you saying that third parties can install things in google services  because if so that is a major security flaw in your product - if not you then who can do that?

You said google had not installed this on my phone so someone else must have and therefore it's a security breach of your software - I want to know who did and as it is your product you will be liable

This is happening in Australia too. Underhanded and sneaky and I would think highly illegal.
