Picked up a cheapo replacement flip phone for emergencies and found these two items.
Permission is to set GPS, on or off, and am trying to find out what they are as everything else appears to be self explanatory.
A search on Google has only provided an image of the same page in the phone but no definition of what it is.

Perhaps a junkware removal tool (jrt)?

Thanks for the guess but so far nothing specific is showing and now it seems there's some difficulty in finding the setting again.
Im thinking it's something which may apply to some phones on various non-specific networks for sublime reasons<------ Deep thought :crazyeyes:

Android has a secret Engineering mode in every Android Device.This Engineering Mode has every control of your phone . It is like a main data centre in your android. Every hardware settings are here. This Application allow you to run Advanced Setup from Engineering Mode Menu of MTK phones, also called SERVICE MODE.
May also include borrowed software?????

As stated above the JRD (note I had this wrong originally (JRT) appears to relate to engineering level shenanigans. Probably why it's not readily found in Google.
The GPS setting along with whatever emails, pictures and anything else is capable or appears to be able to be gathered (note the eponymous "gathered") by engineering.
. . . does anyone know what privacy means?
