TWiT just had a look at DDG's new tracking blocker. Well, we all know that more than 80% of all apps on Play come with trackers. But what we easily tend to ignore:

You don't need to *start* an app. Just having it installed is enough to have it send out its tendrils to Google, Facebook & Co. Which btw is why I no longer use Google: no PlayStore, no account (Google dropped it for inactivity years ago), no GApps…

If an app announces itself as "the most trusted blabla" while being listed for just 2 weeks and having no more than 50 downloads, that's a joke that has my attention: I send it through @exodus (ugh, somebody else was faster!). And right: that "protector" and "safe-keeper" of children comes with Facebook Login, Firebase Analytics, and more.

No more questions, your honor. Most trusted by whom? 🤦‍♂️
