OnePlus OxygenOS built-in analytics: disable it as soon as you can

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/16

Remove the OnePlus Analytics service because of privacy violations:

We take a look at the analytics built into the OxygenOS, the flavour of Android built by phone manufacturer OnePlus.

The analytics data is sent over https, but it contains way too much information on your privacy.

This also taught me about this interesting project: [WayBack] OWASP Zed Attack Proxy Project – OWASP

These tweets describe how to disabled it:

It was also present OnePlus Five, I found it through:

  1. Settings
  2. Developer Options
  3. Running Services
  4. OnePlus System Service
  5. OnePlusAnalyticsJobService

Until removed, it restarts at every boot.

Removing the service seems more permanent than the alternative [WayBack] Dear OnePlus, please stop spying on my phone:

  1. Settings
  2. Advanced
  3. Join user experience program
  4. toggle this option to off

It is unclear to me what turned that option on in the first place.
