Issue ID




Android AdsId is used even when the Ads / Analytics services are disabled



Steps to reproduce:
- Create an empty Android project and make sure the Ads and Analytics are both off
- Compile and run the application on an Android device
- (You may have to change the manifest)

What is expected:
The Ads Id is not used, at all.

What is seen:
The result is that the Ads Id is used without necessarily asking permission to the user

Sophie's Dice has been removed from the play store again, it seems EVERY unity app built rn is in violation of google policy. The only way around it is to make my own privacy policy to say shit like "Unity is requesting personal/private stuff but I'm not gonna use it."

    Now create all your 3D CG graphic Software overlays once as templates and reuse them multiple times. Link 3D chart templates to real-time data sources like ODBC, Excel, JSON, .XML for live data presentations during live productions.

    May I simply just say what a relief to discover someone that actually knows what they are talking about online. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story. It's surprising you aren't more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.
