Google+ is the spawn of the devil
« on: March 20, 2013, 09:40:11 AM »
I didn't get the Nexus so I could join Google's online community - I don't want anything to do with it but it's stalking me through my Nexus AND my laptop. I want to keep my googlemail address but not the rest of the stuff - can I get out of it?

My issues are that with wishing it, I seem to have a "profile" on an internet resouce very similar to Facebook and I didn't elect to have this. I've gone through Settings now and turned off everything I can find that seems to relate to Google+ although having a limited knowledge in these matters I'm never too sure what's a good idea to turn off or leave on.

I just get annoyed with organisations like Google opting me into things i'm not interested in. This aspect of the Nexus works like a dream whilst useful things like getting attachments to non-googlemail email to open requires hours of research and frustation.

What country do you live in?  If you live in the US you can only be signed up things if you opt into and that's how Google+ works. You probably signed up for it at some point without realizing it.

If you turn off the sync and sign out you should have no problems.
