How to permanently block google from chugging data

In my new phone oppo A53, I found google continuously stealing data and popping out useless news as notifications.
Tried disabling and forcing stop but it all went in vain.
Even turned to data saving settings but google still keeps up it’s 💩 in background mode too!
Not to mention, the unnerving google ads where each and every search inside apps like myntra shows up all round for days.
Any way to shut it down for good?

Only option to get rid of this issue, IMO, is to get rid of these two first. Later one can think about Google.

Is this app safe? Not one of those hackers disguise it and steal data from. Like this one I got yesterday  https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/656183/medium/Screenshot_2020-12-21-21-09-04-66.jpg?1608565154

This will not stop google for collecting your data but can stop ads in some apps and browsers. And app is safe in itself. If you are keen on privacy, you have made some grave choices to begin with (oppo wink wink).

Since its open source, with its entire code out in the open and enabling all security experts to review / flag any potential issues in the code, it is perceived to be safer of the lot. and is having very good amount of following in the open source / ad blocking community,

I know Chinese aren’t the only ones stealing data. Certain caucasians are in the lead on spying for centuries.
Eg-  US, UK smile
Maybe you should read WikiLeaks files and know how CIA has access to google chrome, firefox, opera, mac, windows, Linux.
I gave up on privacy long ago.
Just looking for ways to need to save my daily data quota

Get rid of it if possible.

P. S.- My Redmi Note pro 7 is having similar issue. Thinking to exchange it.

I would suggest you to register for DND…
SMS START 0 to 1909

And report every sms like these (if you get even after 7 days) ..

How to… you can search xda forums for your phone model & make

Warranty… You won’t need to worry if you can do software (reinstall and all) if you aren’t that techyy I won’t suggest you to mess..

START 0 is for registration (free of cost)

Even after 7 days, if you recieve such SMS you need to forward the UnsolicitedCommercial SMS to 1909

Format of reporting –

SMS_content, NUM/ID, DATE

For browser use brave browser
Disable Google app if you don’t use it
I keep only Playstore,Gmail,Drive,Gpay and Google Play games and services
Go to : https://myactivity.google.com/myac...ty and turn off everything
For data restrict background data usage

Oh you meant cellular/internet data, well this method will help with that.
And as regards to privacy, yeah can’t do anything about it…

Didn’t knew there is a browser with such name flushed
By turning off my activity they can’t atleast legally spy on you.Rest illegal which has no solution as per my knowledge
Uninstall every bloatware which you don’t use using adb

Lol naked browser sounds scandalous! Even my sibling and cousins looked at me as if I were a perv when I mentioned the name but it’s a good, very light weight browser.
Also uninstalled all bloatwares I could and try to force stop the others
