I think the OP can be pretty safe if he does what he envisioned, under condition to not lost seed, and that his android device is patched with the latest security updates from Google. Just a few days ago I received around 800MB of updates for my android phone, which contained security patches and updates for September&October. It just shows how many security holes have been patched, and there are probably at least more than that which are unknown.

The key risk is in the restoring of wallets and chances of losing the seed, that's why we have hardware wallets where seed should be typed only on the device which completely eliminates any security risk.

Hi, I'm using the blockstream green wallet on Android. I've written down my seed phrase and keep it safe and secure. Can I now uninstall/delete my green wallet app? to be less vulnerable to theft/hacking.

I can still receive but not spent this way right? Should I create a couple of addresses beforehand?

And if I want to spent/exchange, I just download green wallet app again and use the seed phrase to recover my wallet?

Can anyone confirm this is all correct?

Thank you

what you are doing right now is all true and of course very useful for your own security. I think you are one of those people who always think about security even though it is a small thing unlike some people today that we see they don't care about their safety, they always underestimate the little things like that and you should always secure Google your Android account so that nothing enters your device.
