    I was about to purchase something through Cydia, and have no problem with my purchases being tied to my Google login, but I'm not so comfortable with having to click on an Allow button that says Cydia is asking for info about my Google Friends and Updates. If I say No Thanks, I can't proceed. Is the only way to purchase stuff by giving up my friends??

    1) They don't sell or use that info, it's just something they request. 2) It's just Google? They don't get into your Gmail contacts...

    That's why I sign in with facebook. They don't ask for anything, check log in and then i put my stuff for Paypal and pay and install.

    Havok's way works better if you're concerned about privacy.

    Thanks, but I'm still wary because on both the Google and Facebook options, they specifically mention access to your friends. At the very least the door is left open about communicating with them, otherwise why request access at all?

    When I do end up purchasing something, I'll probably do it through the Facebook option then check up on the Facebook app's settings.

    or if your really super paranoid, make another facebook account with a w/e email and just use that..no info in the new facebook account you made other than your name of the account, so there's no risking involve (not that there was any privacy risk to begin in the first place). Sign in with that facebook, paypal via paypal or amazon (you choose) and voila! Install option appears...
