‘Nexus Imprints’ stored on the Nexus 6P and 5X aren’t uploaded to the cloud

    I don’t see the point of these claims. Can the user really verify if the fingerprints are sent or not? Is it in an open source part of the OS?

    • WELL SAID!
      Unless you know your Java code VERY well and are a developer to access to a FULL Google Android code – not just the open sourced Android core but to ALL their API’s and services then NO you’ll never know.

      Considering the amount of data they’ve sourced and sold prior to Marshmallow I don’t trust their statement.

      I don’t think anything here is going to be in java-land other than APIs that get exposed.

      Well if developers can access the code this is good enough. The average joe won’t understand. But if developers can confirm that the fingerprints do not leave the phone it’s a good thing, one advantage of open source software.

      Hey, that’s really cool. Where did you get a Lucha Libre mask made out of tin foil?

    It’s fine, Google already has every bit of your personal information you’ve ever put online.
