After installation of /e/OS I want to share my experiences.
The installation was a very quick an ease thing. I’ve it done along the steps @piero described.
The result is, that I haven’t lost any app or app historiy like calls, sms, messanges a. s. o.
At first all looked fine. But by testing my apps I saw that some of them, especially open source apps lost there functions.
For some of them I found substitutes, also open source, like for my pdf viewer. Now I’ve a de-googled OS, thats a fine thing.
But I also lost privatcy protection and security because I can not use apps like Titanium Backup, NetGurard, XPrivacyLuaPro furtheron.
This disadvantidge I want to explain an example: I use the app taxi.eu. This app get in contact inter alia with web sites like:
And the app tracks device data like:
- app id
- sim card provider
- location of sim card provider
- personal location information
In order to use the app taxi.eu I blocked facebook and google sites but not the google-maps-site. To do this I used NetGurard app. To surpress data like app id, sim card provider etc. XPrivacyLua sents fake data. Hence I could used google/maps functionality anonymously. Now I will be visible for facebook and google, if I woud use taxi.eu.
If I may have a wisch, I would wish thas that e-foundation get in colaboration with the developer of NetGurard an XPrivatcyLua.
