    I guess that's something I've always dealt with.
    US Navy had emergency contact information. Seemed it was updated every change of Duty Station. Had to wear a dog tag, so everyone knew who the body used to be, with the blood type in case I wasn't quite dead.

    Steel mill. Mostly the same without the dogtag. I have emergency contacts filed with the corporation, and with the area I work in.

    Paper in my wallet in case it's a car accident.
    Spent a lot of time traveling around, where there was no family in the area to know if I was missing.

    MasterCard is dropping its name from its brand.

    Convenient, this happening after the recent news that they're using influence to ban people of certain political views from platforms, this would make naming them as the culprit harder.

    I don't like apps that I can't delete.
    I don't use, or have, the FB app.
    But, I have the uber app. I don't use it. I don't want it.

    We need to get a smart developer to develop an android app that will remove these permanent apps. I'd pay $5 for that app and I'm sure a lot of others would.

    Facebook, Uber, Samsung Health and other Samsung apps could all go. No more worries about clutter, memory drain, apps working in the background, playstore updating, etc.

    This has been an issue since the dawn of smart phones. It's only now an issue as facebook has fallen out of favor with the masses. If you can gain root access on the device you can remove the apps but that has been getting more difficult and arduous. Also usually comes with some kind of penalty wherin the device claims it's not secure even though it is technically more secure without facebook and other apps you don't want/use.

    PCs also suffer from this but you have the power to remove the apps. For some reason phone vendors believe they have the right to tell you what third party apps you must have on your device.
