Default Do you turn off "location access" in all the apps that don't need it?

That kinda makes sense because there's nowhere in the Android settings
to specify an NTP server.


I did some more digging and found that some Android runtimes have an
NTP server hard coded into the firmware. Specifically the stock
version has 2.android.pool.ntp.org buried in the binary. See line
820 in:
https://android.googlesource.com/platform/frameworks/base/+/40caf8f4432acd2b9d9230b2b1371660521415c2/core/res/res/values/config.xml#802
The OEM versions might use other servers. There's also some question
as to whether any of these Android phones actually use a hard coded
NTP server. I suspect not.
