Something very fucked up just happened. I got a notification from Google saying "For an experience more appropriate to your age, we've changed some settings", and I was like "What the hell???". Apparently they recognized that I'm 18 because I had to take a picture of my ID card earlier today. This is outright creepy. I wanna degoogle my phone right now.
I don’t know whether to laugh, or cry. Mostly I’m crying. The internet was never perfect, but it used to be so much better.
