While Apple, amazon, facebook is battling with lawsuits and themselves, there are someone else is smiling at the dark. While West are battling themselves, East now are currently waitng and watching to fish in the troubled water. The reason US will be in decline because they battling themselves while west are also fishing on it, while CPP are in control most of their companies , they used "Democracy" to get into West. The thing is, they are eating the the "West" using their own "Democracy" , an irony.

abigfanoftechs, 20 Nov 2020Agree. But disabling it would stop the collection, yes?You can simply deny all permission & then disable them. I have done it with most of google app and some bloatware also you can disable the auto update. This will speed up you phone. You can try this and then run the geekbench 5 and see for yourself.

Why do people even care? I don't care if apple or Google or whoever has my data as long as it's not hitting my pocket. What does it matter? I'm not that interesting. Neither are the other people that are victims of data collection or data mining. I don't understand why people even care. All these companies are crooked anyway. It's not a huge revelation here. It's all nonsense.

Those who claim to be innocent of stealing private information are actually the ones who actually do it.

It's laughable how these companies are claiming that they care about privacy of users when both Are guilty of stealing and misusing your data..

Smart devices are data-driven. Misuse of user data should be the concern, not usage of user data, itself.

abigfanoftechs, 20 Nov 2020Agree. But disabling it would stop the collection, yes?No. You have to disable 'Facebook services' too. It's hidden in 'system apps'.

So, don't worry, no company is honest in this regard.

The company also said Facebook is "collecting user data with disregard of user privacy". That is true. I live in Europe. Facebook is against all European laws. I have had a profile blocked by Facebook for not providing them with my official country ID. Facebook is NOT a police entity, it is not Interpol to steal my data and block my account and spy me, to prevent me from connecting with my contacts and to ask me for something that they cannot ask me for, my official ID, besides spying on everything, simply because they wanted to authenticate that my name matches my official ID. I have not create a new account on a social network where they practice National Socialism. There is a reason why sat the owner of Facebook in front of judges.

It is pretty easy, just search for it
