    Pre-installed Android system app. GPS Daemon. What is it? Didnt notice it till my NetGuard firewall brought it to my attention. Cant find it or make any changes to it in the app settings on my device. Any insight? Anyone know what it is or what it does or how to configure it?

    A daemon is linux terminology for a background process, i.e. one that is not controlled by the user. They are commonly used to provide system services. So yeah, GPS daemon is something that's supposed to be there and you are not supposed to fiddle with it. Your only interaction should be via the location settings in the system menu.

    It's nothing to worry about (nor is the DNS daemon I also see listed there - your internet connection relies on that one).
