    Absolutely new to Galaxy Tab 4 and Android. I tapped an icon called "Play Games" and I get a screen that wants me to create a "public Google+ profile." What is this any why do I need it? It does not give me an option to proceed without creating one. I do not want any personal information made public. Why is Google FORCING me to put my full name out on a public profile just to play games?

    Can someone please explain this to me as I seem to be missing something. Is there some way to use this device WITHOUT making anything about me "public?"

    Thank you.
