I'm sorry but why does a banking app need to see a list of system-wide packages? And for what security purpose?
If all apps were tightly sandboxed in the first place then this wouldn't be a problem that requires an edge-case solution using "privacy protections" from #Google.
My prediction is that #Facebook will now roll out a dedicated wallet app — along with regular wallet functionality it will gleefully take advantage of this exact loophole.
