I understand that /e/ is being designed to prevent data being shared with Google, I think that is great.
I ran across this article and the accompanying report, here: https://www.privacyinternational.org/report/2647/how-apps-android-share-data-facebook-report . In it the authors discuss how apps will share data with Facebook by design, no matter what the user chooses as options for the app. This made me think about apps on /e/…
Will /e/ prevent apps from sharing data with Facebook or anyone as is described in that article?
When installing apps on /e/, will there be some indicator to me that will tell me, Hey, this app is one of those “evil” apps that by design shares data with Facebook (or whoever)?
I think it is great not to share data with Google, but isn’t that winning only half the battle if the apps themselves are sharing data with Facebook (or others), and we don’t know that and/or cannot control that?
(I “kind of” touched on this question in an earlier post, but not so explicitly - and I really didn’t get much response. Also, with the issuance of this report/study results, it seems that it is a real life problem.)
