Anyone else feel like there being watched or monitored using one of these boxes? I got one of these off Ebay shipped from china and it came with a bunch of bloatware preinstalled and the screen glitches quite a bit…🤔
I have 4 different boxes, all from China, after installing paid antivirus software from my internetprovider néver found virusses or other mallware, sometimes 3-4 apps were mentioned by the software that they COULD handle your info maybe incorrect, but Facebook also was mentioned as other social media that those apps know a LOT of your details. Also, I’ve never had or still have any problems with playing movies and streaming.
Here is what i do… I sell alot of H96 Q box and a few others
I factory reset each one. I have a custom image that i load on these. I can even Mac clone these so that they are undetectable by your isp. All the isp sees is a Samsung cell phone. Its insane to just plug and play with these boxes… These boxes are great to build out
Do what some of us do re-flash with more trusted firmware there’s a number of trusted developers on freektab who have developed universal firmware for some of the newer amlogic cpu so s905/w/x/s912/s922 and android tv OS is a better TV UI then mobile OS that they come from China with. It’s not hard to do but you will need a pc.
You will lose any guarantee that the box comes with but let’s have it right it’s not like any guarantee is worth the paper it’s written on
