I'm not sure of what you mean by ADB. I took security training as part of a past job, and I am nowhere near a computer programmer

Okay then, maybe you could try changing the language to Russian so when you talk it won't understand you.

None of those apps are spamware or malware. All you have to do if they are on your phone is toggle them off in settings

Security firms and the government consider them spyware/malware. Most of them couldn't be turned off, and I had to have samsung permanently snooze, deactivate, or remove the software

You dont want them, don't buy Samsung. Nothing worse than people buying a phone and then complaining about those very features they are known for. If you think everything is spamware kr spyware, you may as well just go with a rotary phone and pencil and paper. Come back when you have a real issue.

These features are classified as spyware/malware. Every security firm and the US government recommends deactivating them when you get the phones.

Just like your supposed to disable Alexa and seri on their respective platforms.

Lol no the U.S government does not recommend this.

But the security patch is a monthly release from Google to update and patch security flaws found in Android. Some manufacturers release them every month, some don't. But Google releases a security patch every month
