Privacy Practical devices come preinstalled with the Neo Store which offers thousands of open source, privacy friendly apps from F-Droid, IzzyOnDroid and other popular app repositories.

Many popular Play Store apps can be accessed legally via the Amazon Android App Store, but may require Google software for compatibility. Other app developers provide APK files on their official websites. You can use Plexus to check which of these apps run on fully degoogled devices. Many services which use apps also have corresponding web apps which run in an internet browser.

Third-party Google Play Store clients like Aurora Store violate the Google Play Store terms of service and consequently copyright laws so we do not include those by default. See the following section for more details on that topic.

Privacy Practical currently do not offer tablets with LineageOS variants that have the microG Google compatibility layer installed. Unfortunately services that replace the normal functionality of Google services are usually on dubious grounds legally. They can violate Google TOS in various ways depending on their implementation. Copyright laws are likely violated as a result when using third-party Google Play Store clients.

This tablet running LineageOS 19 is going to be more secure in many ways and in a few limited ways less than others in comparison to your typical Android device. Read on to learn more.

Why it’s more secure

LineageOS is based off the Android Open Source Project which is very secure in general. As long as you download reputable apps from trusted sources like the F-Droid store or Aurora (Play) Store the odds of someone compromising your device are very low. Apps are heavily sandboxed in Android and by default have no access to important system files and settings or even other apps.

Because LineageOS is free and open source software you can be sure there aren’t any backdoors put into the software by manufacturers. The code is also being constantly audited by the Android community.

LineageOS will also typically support devices with software security updates far beyond what the manufacturers will ensuring your device stays secure against the latest Android vulnerabilities.

Why it’s less secure

The bootloader is not locked on devices running LineageOS.

If there an attacker has physical access to this device the tablet will be less secure since the software on the device can be modified in person.

Conclusion

A degoogled tablet running LineageOS is going to be secure enough for the average person.

Unless you are an individual with corporate or state secrets, or a journalist it should meet your security needs.
