Android Auto App

Looking at this app, it says it is only compatible with Android 5.0 (lollipop) or greater. Just curious if anyone has downloaded it on kitkat and whether or not they got it to work.

Lollipop is not available for my phone model, and I know I need a new one. Just trying to see if I can postpone that transition.

I honestly wouldn't trust using an old android device. so many security holes. You're asking to be hacked.
I don't keep any important data on mine.
google credentials?

honestly, run lineage on it!
authorization token is still a credential. its a revokable credential, but fundamentally no different than username/password. In fact, in a 2FA world, it be worse for an attacker to get that token than to get your username/password.
I'm not sure I've been clear about the threat. download a bad app or go to a bad webpage and an attacker can exploit your phone without you knowing it. these old phones have known exploits. Once your phone is exploited, an attacker can see everything you do and be able to impersonate you to google (or whatever other services you access through your phone)
