I just got my Gigaset GS290 with eOS, and of course as a non-tech person there are a lot of questions in the beginning. That’s also why I have ordered the pre-installed phone. I have chosen eOS as it seems to be the most far developed and user-friendly system if one would not like to have iOS or google’s spy phones. Still I am also waiting for a Librem5 with PureOS. Well, that one might never happen. Have been waiting a long time now.
Anyway as I coudl read eOS is degoogled and is using a fake server to be able to use google services without they being able to spy or track me. There are probably already many that have asked, and in this forum I could not find a clear answer to my following question …at least not so that I could understand… Through the pre-installed app store I can get access to a lot of apps (which I think f-droid is included?), so if I for example would like to install Google Maps (crazy I know, but it is just a hypothetical question) which has a rating of 8/10 regarding the privacy, and the google app includes a google analysis tracker, so… is google spying on me here, or can they not, due to the fake google server the eOS-phone is working with?
I presume if the trackers are non-google/from othere services I could be tracked, of course, so the best would be to chose an app with 10/10 beside the other aspect of access rights of apps to the phone.
Maybe someone could answer my question in an non-tech way? Thanks in advance.
