I have some questions regarding privacy violations and tracking:
Does Gmail import all the contacts we store on our phones,
– like Whatsapp notoriously does, or are they not as nasty, and only use
the contacts we stored online with them on Google Contacts?
We all get a lot of permission requests from apps. What kind of
permission requests from apps should we allow – or deny?
Is there a tool that can help us choose what to allow or not?
Some apps contain trackers. It would be great to avoid these apps
altogether, but sometimes some of us need to use some of these apps,
for example for work reasons. My question is: Do these trackers track
“only” what we do while using that specific app, or is there a risk that
they can track other things we do while using our phones as well?
I would be interested in replies from anybody who is interested in the topic,
but also in a more ‘official’ reply from /e/, perhaps from @Manoj.
