Thanks to @exodus, I just uninstalled a bunch of apps that use Facebook tracking. Opentable, instacart, grubhub, and etsy, I can use via Firefox or Chromium. The few that I use too much to uninstall, I will write to ask to move away from Facebook.
I don't know if it is the perfect way, but I use Blokada. You do not need to root your device and it blocks all connections to trackers.
@travisfw @exodus Many apps can also replaced with their websites and some websites even use PWA which transform website into app like design
@Utgardloki @travisfw @exodus
By app like design you just mean removing the browser UI right?
I have never found the appeal of PWA. I prefer a lot to just have a shortcut to the website to open in the browser were I will still have the ability to have multiple tabs open.
@dreeg @travisfw @exodus Yes this is what I mean.
Many sites moved already to PWA. If yours doesn't, ask them for support.PWA is the future
