Privacy and smartphones is something of a popular — and important! — topic, especially after the last few years of spying scandals and security breaches. It's often not clear how much data from your device is being collected, not just by your apps and by Google, but by the manufacturers. It's also often unclear just how to turn that off on your phone should you wish to not have your data being shared with them.
It's transparency done right, and it's worth highlighting here.
Motorola Help is more than just a shortcut to tech support — although that is a lovely little feature to have — it is also the user manual, troubleshooting guide, and if need be a teacher with the "Show me how" section. It seems odd to hide the device feedback setting here, but keep in mind that Moto Help is one of the only apps on your Moto X that actually connects to your Motorola ID, which is the account through which your device's feedback is sent.
Upon hitting the settings gear on the top right corner, we find ourself in settings, and our quarry is front and center: Motorola Privacy.
Do you disable any of these settings? Do you find it reassuring to be able to read what information Motorola collects, how its stored, and what Motorola does with it? Is there any way manufacturers could make this any better for users?
