Have two of them
Apple and Google both track an unnerving amount of your data, mapping out intimate details of your life is intrinsic to their business model. Standard phones will send your data to their servers several times per hour.
They can articulate your history and even your every movement with far greater accuracy than you yourself. If you use their systems (like Google Photos or iCloud) to back up your photos and videos they can take a peek anytime they want. Is that information something you really want them to have?
I don’t see any reason why they should, and I can see a lot of situations where this could go wrong. That’s why I use a version of Android on my phone that does not have any Google services connected to it. My phone doesn’t send their servers a single thing unless I decide to. I’ve taken that power away from them and placed it into my own hands.
phone will not automatically or routinely send usage data to Google
Everywhere you’ve gone with an Apple or Google Android device in on your person: they’ve got a log of that.
Every word you’ve uttered into talk to text, or digital helpers like Siri and Google Assistant, is now stored on the respective company’s servers. I’m sure volumes of my voice/ audio data exists in Apple’s databases, but that flow of information ended when I switched to a de-googled phone.
How often do smartphones “phone home” per hour? (as of 2018)
Android: 40.2 instances when idle, 90.3 instances while active
iPhone: 4.2 instances when idle, 17.9 instances while active
Sure, Apple gathers information about you less often, but they’re still gathering info about you even while the phone is not in use. It might be the case that they’re simply packaging that information more efficiently.
Even if you’ve opted out to location tracking and other data collection, this has no effect, they’re still tracking you.
They don’t want you to know exactly how they’re tracking you. Therefore all that code is proprietary and hidden from the light of day. However, Android itself is open source and you can inspect it for yourself or know that professional geeks have done so in their own interest.
De-googled phone operating systems take the open-source code from Android and build from there. This means they can publish and package the code without adding tracking software. If they keep the code open source, that means anyone can inspect it and raise a red flag if tracking is going on or the team is otherwise going against their stated purpose.
you can install and use most Android apps and use them as you would with a Google Android device
Calyx OS and Lineage OS are both operating systems based on Android. They simply do not include Google’s apps and services where the tracking is located, and that’s what you want.
They are Android devices, and they function the same way your run-of-the-mill Android phone does. This means you can install and use most Android apps.
There will be some differences in how you do some things, like installing apps, but overall using a de-googled Android device is the almost exactly the same as using a typical Google Android device.
Social media apps work, weather and mapping apps work, banking apps work, music apps work, my grocery store’s curbside/ delivery app works, of course browsers work, and more. I don’t feel like I’ve sacrificed much utility at all by switching to a de-googled phone.
