and installed and executed.

Lets say myAppName uses

to save data when it is executed.
Let's say that the app saves a file called MyAppData.csv in a directory
called /Documents/MyAppName

Then examination of my phone's or tablet's file structure using the app MyFiles (available from Playstore) shows that the path to the saved file is as follows:


I am unhappy that my MyGmail .gmail tag is visible to anyone who downloads my app and uses it.
Why is it included?

If so, then the only way to keep MyGmail for my own use to create a new .gmail account and transfer all my projects to it?

This quirk comes rather unexpectedly late in my app creating experience.
Any views on this?

Use the code server without an account

The package name will then be something like:
