  1. I am a bit paranoid regarding “my” google account, where I have huge amount of data in the cloud. it’s also my developer account for my apps.
    Do you consider it “safe” to use a “real productive” google account inside Remix?

    I mean, as far as I know, google removed their support from Jide, they are no longer allowed to use the play store. So, might not google lock down the accounts using Remix as they clearly stated, Remix is “not a licensed system” and explicitly revoked play store access?
    Whatever backdoor is used here with the play store activator… would you really use your REAL account here?
    On the other hand, such a system makes absolutely no sense, if you can’t use your real account (or put it in danger), as you wouldnt have the contacts, drive, paid apps, your _everything_ then.
