Still works well even with almost all permissions denied using LBE Privacy Guard. Want my Phone ID? Too bad!



Hehe good to hear. We use a hashed version of phone IMEI as a unique identifier for proper weighting and cleaning of the data. You can also stop this without LBE by turning off data-sharing in the app, but then you won't be contributing to the world' largest and most open coverage maps.

Yep, I'm still contributing my data. I was just a little bit leery of giving the unique ID of my handset. Will the data I share with my IMEI blocked still be useful?
