I was planning  a vacation with my friend few days back and we were discussing about places.I was shocked to see a what’s app message on my phone 2 days later regarding travel packages of that place.We have not discussed about our tour plan with anyone else.And similar incident happened few days later.I was discussing with my friend  to buy a plot in an area and next day a message popped on my whatsapp from Real estate company in that area.Later,I got to know my Whatsapp microphone was ON and whatsapp was eavesdropping us.I suggest everyone to put microphone and camera  off for all the apps on your smart phone and Use them only when needed.

Bro nobody will believe this but lemme say why I left FB. One fine day I was scrolling through fb and had a thought in mind about something which I don't remember much. Suddenly that exact thing appeared on my FB feed. Believe me I haven't made any Google search, talked to anybody about that moreover I myself haven't had any idea about that earlier. Told my friends about this somebody laughed but some people told me that they were too experienced the same. Gives me chill even now fearful

google will not only listen to you they will also track your location and identify that you are travelling to some new place. On android even if you turn of all the permissions then too google will still have all your data. Thats why android is not as secure as IOS.

iOS is secured is a myth spread by Apple to sell their device. In reality, everything is same.

अगर कुछ मुफ्त है, तो ग्राहक खुद ही उत्पाद बन जाता है जो बेचा जा रहा है

अगर आप इसके लिए पैसे नहीं दे रहे हैं, तो आप उसका उपयोगकर्ता नहीं हैं, आप उसका उत्पाद हैं जो बेचा जा रहा है।

  1. Social Media Platforms:

    • Free Service: Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter allow users to create profiles, connect with friends, and share content without any direct monetary cost.
    • Product Being Sold: However, these platforms collect vast amounts of user data—such as interests, behaviors, and demographics. Advertisers pay to target specific audiences based on this data. Users become the product, as their attention and personal information are used for targeted ads.
  2. Search Engines:

    • Free Service: Search engines like Google and Bing provide free access to information and answer our queries.
    • Product Being Sold: These search engines display ads alongside search results. Advertisers bid to have their ads shown to users based on their search terms. User data (search history, location, etc.) helps refine ad targeting.
  3. Email Services:

    • Free Service: Email providers like Gmail offer free email accounts.
    • Product Being Sold: While users send and receive emails, algorithms scan the content to display relevant ads. Advertisers pay to reach users based on their email content and behavior.
  4. Freemium Apps:

    • Free Service: Many mobile apps are free to download and use.
    • Product Being Sold: In-app purchases, ads, or premium subscriptions generate revenue. Users who engage with ads or make purchases become valuable to app developers.
  5. Content Streaming Platforms:

    • Free Service: Platforms like YouTube offer free video streaming.
    • Product Being Sold: Advertisements interrupt videos, and user data informs ad targeting. Creators also monetize their content through ads.
  6. News Websites:

    • Free Service: Online news websites provide news articles without charging readers.
    • Product Being Sold: Ads on these websites generate revenue. User data (clicks, reading habits) helps tailor ads.

1. Stay away from social media, create second profile to watch required content(although even if you use website, still need email/phone#, device, ip track).

2. Using brave search but  again they must be using my info. https://search.brave.com/help/privacy-...cy, have enable all privacy switches in browser.

3. Can't hide from gmail, have proton mail account but everywhere gmail is used...
They say the can't read the content, but lol they do everytime I will say.

4. All apps try to tract activity/data its their money making chance. yday could not find 1 popular calculator app which does not collect data. Why calc requires tracking. Need to be more careful no option.

5. Youtube has the content, no hiding from it. Use it in brave browser to avoid ads.

6. Sadly not much of any option again, use brave browser to watch news in incognito.

Does not matter, they can listen and see everything unofficially, you can do nothing about it.
I know of people who work in company boards, in their top meetings, all are asked to switch off mobiles and deposit outside the meeting rooms, that is cause they know mobiles can hear and see

Hate when these things happens, these companies one or other way try to get/track all our activity.

I have given 0 permissions(even to Google, Android Auto, Android System Intelligence - everywhere you will see these have mic/location). Don't use google assistant, find my phone may also not work but ready to pay the cost I think.

Also use privacy oriented options at https://myactivity.googl...m/

But end of day I think I can't hide data/activity from 1. Google 2. Phone manufacturer.

Let me know if have any more tips to be more privacy safe with android.
