Also, a subscription to Google Music also gets you YouTube Red which has little or no ads on YouTube. Worth it, IMO.
There is also an option called "Downloaded Only" in Play Music which will hide all the streaming stuff and suggestions.

Lots of people take nude selfies so I assumed I wasn't the only one who had a few pictures on their phone they didn't want anyone else seeing. In samsung there's the option to hide such pix.

I think I'm just having some growing pains.

Sort of. But they still show up other places I might not want them to.

I donít have nude selfies, but for sensitive documents, I use ES File Explorer which has an encrypt feature. You can encrypt just the file or the file and the file name. They have a pro version and a free ad supported version.

As far as ads go on the apps I have a two part solution.

1. You can download the google rewards app that will ask you questions every once and a while. If you answer their questions they will give you money you can use in the play store. It is noninvasive and you can answer the survey questions whenever you'd like.
2. Use that money to buy the paid versions of the apps that don't contain ads. You can also use the money in the play store to buy/rent movies and music.

I just checked and I've accumulated over $40 in free rewards money to use in the play store since I got my phone. It's an easy way to get the versions of the apps without ads without actually feeling stupid by paying for them.

I don't take naked photos of myself or my wife, so yeah no issue with people seeing what's in my photos.

I second this suggestion. I’m sure it’s horrible for privacy, but at this point, I don’t care too much about that anymore. Google already knows everything about me, so I’d rather they threw me a few bucks here and there for the data they’re getting from me. Assuming you have location services enabled, you’ll typically get 2-3 question surveys about places you’ve been to. They usually take 10 seconds max to answer. If they detect your GPS lingers in some store for an hour, they’ll ask if you visited the store, and if you did, they'll ask about your purchase. I can see that type of information being valuable to marketers. The survey comes as a push notification to your phone, you answer a few questions, and you get 20 cents for your trouble. Dollar amounts are tiny, but then again, so are app prices. I’ve got about $50 saved up there, and the past few years, I’ve used the money for a subscription to the MLB At-Bat premium app (gives you access to the radio feeds for all the games, which is great on road trips or at work during day games).

You have to be honest though. Google sometimes asks about made-up businesses. If you say you visited some place that doesn’t exist, Google will assume your information is useless to marketers, and will stop sending you surveys.
