Applications that can be downloaded from Google Play (including pre-installed applications) will prompt the user to send a crash report to Google servers when the application crashes. The crash report will include application logs and stack traces, as well as device information that could potentially include user information. With this feature enabled, sensitive information will be backed up to the manufacturer's servers and database. This data is stored at a location that has unauthorized employees accessing this data. This data is stored on a server that has a location unknown to the DoD. Disabling this feature mitigates the risk of a backup feature that stores sensitive data on a server that has the potential to be located in a country other than the United States.
