Security Master(Cheetah) has removed caller ID&Block from the app. Explanation was Google Play's TOS no longer allow it. Huh?
What does GP have to do with some apps not owned or developed by it? Why would they care, unless they are pushing their own caller ID apps.
Anyway, SM seems to do whatever other apps do, so I decided I no longer need it.

I used to like Cheetah products, till discovered how huge they can get with the time and require a lot of battery power.
I don't use them anymore. Samsung and Pixel phone I currently use have great built-in security protection, so there is no need for additional apps.
I also checked multiple caller ID apps, and decided that best coverage and response I get from TrueCaller. It covers calls and text. Very intuitive and frequently updated. I am using it for years now.

Yea, I avoid CM like the plague too. They had some serious privacy issues a few years ago.
