"IPhone is most secure and private, Android is less secure and private"
No, Android itself isn’t bad for privacy, the apps you use there make it less private and obviously Google
Do you know ?
Our Android phones send 1MB of data, compared with iOS sending Apple around 42KB every 12 hours.
• Yes, If you use the Android which come with the phone because these Android OS are with lots and lots bloatware from google, your phone manufacturer, third party apps by phone manufacturer etc…
Some apps in these can be uninstalled and many CANNOT BE UNINSTALLED in normal methods
These apps are junky and regularly send data to the company’s server
• Many android phone manufacturers use Google’s custom variant of Android which have lots and lots of Gapps (Google Apps) pre-installed
• Obviously if can’t uninstall those apps you will start using it !
• If we use different services for different things the threat will be the least as we use all google products,then they give them a complete map of our daily routines, our habits, our hobbies, our interests, our financial status, our businesses, our characters, interests, etc…
everything else !
literally everything else !!!
Well, this is scary enough
Google knows your location even if you turn of your location
(Said by Mr.Sundar Pichai)
If you asked me how then see this video
Well, there are lots of way to get rid of this like disabling google services (not everything can be done untill you’re a superuser), Not signing in the phone, no agreeing everything you see in the screen, etc…
One of the greatest, most powerful and my favorite method is "CUSTOM ROMS"
As Android is Open-Sourced because it is extracted from Linux Many great developers out of Curiosity, Hobby etc… Started making their own variant of Android, well some have went too far in development, and some are very close to stock android
The only way is to use a near stock android custom rom without any Gapps and FACEBOOK apps especially and without signing into any services
I recommend using AOSiP, AOSP, AOSP Extented, Lineage, /e/ for phones other than Pixels if these ROMs are available for your phone
All roms might be a bit unstable in times as it developed by a group of developers or a single developer ( I’m amazed)
And If you use a Pixel Phone then you’re too luck
You can use GrapheneOS (also know CopperHeadOS), Calyx Os are specially made for Pixel phone and they are more stable, secure and private than other roms as these are build for privacy as their soul purpose
If you are ready to make your phone performance down but you need a phone with more security you are free to go with Graphene OS
But if you’re not ready to let your phone’s performance down but you want the same security as Stock Android you can go with Calyx OS
If you continue to use all your google apps and Facebook apps again then there is no result for your changes
Start using PWA (Progressive Web Apps)
And look for Open-souce alternatives for the apps you use like F-Droid
Do you know ?
Google can track your websites visits even if you don’t use Google Products
But How ?
Nowadays All websites are created with google services to enhance the viewer’s experience, for analytics, for studies etc… like Google tag manager, Google analystics etc…
This will take your privacy back in a very huge manner if you follow everything in a correct way !
So, there are many ways to stop everything, but BEFORE DOING ANYTHING TAKE MORE TIME AND MAKE YOUR OWN RESEARCH !!
AND FOR CUSTOM ROMS YOUR PHONES BOOTLOADER MUST BE UNLOACKED !
THIS MAY HAVE SOME NEGATIVE IMPACTS LIKE VOIDING YOUR WARRANTY ETC…
IN THE PROCESS OF INSTALLING CUSTOM ROMS, YOU CAN BRICK YOUR PHONE, SO ATLEAST TAKE A MONTH TIME TO MAKE YOUR OWN REASEARCH
ME MYSELF OR CYBERNITY GROUP IS NOT RESPONSIBE FOR ANYTHING YOU MAY END WITH. SO, DO IT IN YOUR OWN RISK.
I use AOSP Exetended as my Daily driver : )
