Every every phone come with Google spyware so does it even matter everyone? If you wanna avoid it buy a Huawei! c:

Your phone is trackable even with zero apps installed and location services turned off. And it's been tracked from the moment you put your SIM/eSIM card in it.

This is nothing new and it won't change. Just accept it and move on. And if you can - enjoy the tech, because this is the only thing that is going positive in this fucked up world.

I am so paranoid, OnePlus will never collect user data, why would they, it isn't as if they already did that.

Sure :

Never :

Never ever :

OnePlus was always exemplary with private/personal data :

To the point the official OnePlus website :
https://www.oneplus.com/uk/legal/privacy-policy
Doesn't say at all :
"We may collect your GPS location information if you use location-based apps such as maps, navigation and weather service apps."

Get real, every big (and even smaller) company nowaday just throw away your privacy, and most of you literally have no idea how bad the lack of privacy can get and yet you talk about it as if it was no big deal.

In a world where not a single week without a new and proven privacy related scandal hit the news ?

Please, be serious.
You think you need GPS to be tracked ?
Oh waw, you are so ignorant, data is already enough to track a user, even Wi-Fi alone when not connected is KNOWN by security experts to be a really precise way to locate someone.
In fact, even with you disable your Wi-Fi, it will still actually perform scans.

Yeah, why would anyone complain that a phone can take your privacy away and literally track you in a world where more and more dictatorship behavior are done by the government.

But I guess you know better than the UN Privacy chief :

You are the typical kind of person who think he is clever to say "you just want to complain" when someone point out a brand install a bloatware.

And you obviously know better than you.
And when you get in a shop and Google Map ask you to rate the place, it is only an optical illusion.

Wake up, you aren't in gummy bear land, where you go is a valuable information that can be sold.

YUKI93, 22 Nov 2020OnePlus track its users? I so doubt that.I am sure many OnePlus (or any other brand for that matter) fanboys think their brand is the best and perfectly respect their privacy, while in truth, not a single brand do, that's one of the reason why the need for privacy isn't taken more seriously.

It seems like OnePlus is a popular brand in India. I'd be so surprised to know if mainland China doesn't even have this thing at all.
