    How to turn off my internet brousing, who's business is it ?

    How do I turn off Google Androids constant reminder that I must pay a subscription fee to view The Independent | News | UK and Worldwide News | Newspaper ?
    There are also other sites copying the same principle, allowing only a limited number of site visits for free.
    I don't have this problem with with laptop, with OS WIN 7 !

    If I can't turn this S++T off. This will be the LAST Google Android Tablet I buy!

    TIA!

    It's not Google sending you these messages, it's the sites you visit. You will need an app to hide your identity or use a VPN.

    Great! So your telling me I need another Google app to spy on me ?

    Google already does plenty of spying, I can't log out of Gmail on my tablet, hence I don't use a Gmail account on my tablet.
    Google apps constantly wants to upgrade some stupid games, I played once or twice on my Tablet.

    and I don't use Google/Mozilla as my main search engine any longer on my Laptop.

    I suspect the real answer is to stay away for Tablets.

    Unless your willing to provide a real solution other than "there an app for that" your comment is worthless!

    That was far from a worthless comment. Maybe you didn't quite understand that the problem is not Google related. You may have installed an app that included advertising or some malware. If it's bothering you that much maybe you should consider a factory reset and start all over. Or maybe the newspaper app if you have it installed. Not only is it not a Google problem, it isn't Android either. That can easily happen to a Windows system.

    If privacy is the issue the VPN is the nest solution.

    Do not take your frustrations out on me or any other member. Our intention is to provide useful and accurate information. This is not a tablet issue. It works the same way on phones as well. If you installed apps that are creating this issue the burden is on you to resolve the problem you created.
