    I Really Do Hope That This Really Would Work Just Like The Toolwiz Time Freeze Sandbox That’s On Win10 Systems At The Moment As To Be Extended To The Android Phones Within The Near Future, Since Their Android OS is Having Trojanware And Scareware Issues Within Their Google Play Store And Within Their Samsung Galaxy Store Along With Their Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Application Being Defective And The Android System Itself Being The Defenseless Droid Phone. It Makes Me Want To Press The S.O.S. Button.

    I found this super handy as my father is visiting China soon and the Google App store is blocked there. You have to use the Chinese government’s app store which we don’t trust.

    1) The Chinese government has been known to insert spy software in popular apps.

    2) Google is better at preventing malware in the App Store.

    3) Chinese apps often request overly broad permissions.

    4) The Chinese App store is not good at filtering out buggy apps; this, coupled with 3, means an app could accidentally delete or corrupt your data.

    Oasisfeng has been sold to a china corp long ago. So, those saying that want to avoid china government by using a Chinese app as a PHONE ADMINISTRATOR… well…

    There’s also open source app Shelter available from Google play and F-Droid. Being at F-Droid makes sure there are no trackers, for same reason Island is not in F-Droid.

    Ok so what is the best way to still have IG, FB and Whatsapp but stop them from using your phone with the new TOS?

    How good is island in isolating possible malware, rat, trojans? if there is a o day on whatsapp and I have cloned it am I still vulnerable?

    • Adam says:

      Island, Insular and similar apps don’t increase the security of apps. They simply isolate the apps from your main apps.

      For protection against malware, 0-days, etc I recommend checking up on GrapheneOS or DivestOS.

    Looks like Island is open source, so I’m not sure we have to worry about if oasisfeng is releasing software controlled by the Chinese government, lol.

    I recently wanted to add another app to Island but I didn’t like the new features where a person is made to sign into Google to add the app. That I don’t like because I keep Google blocked and why would Google need to have permission to know I want to take an app from my mainland to put inside Island?
