Let’s talk about De-googling a Google phone (P…

Sounds ironic and a little counter-intuitive, but Google branded phones are easily customizable, pretty good products, and have good development communities.​So… Lets talk about the pros and cons and the trade-offs of running a custom ROM sans google on a google phone. I have some questions but I’m more interested in this being a broad discussion. But to get things started:Are there features particular to google phones (not android phones in general) that you miss out on when you don’t use any GApps?What apps do you find it hardest/not worth it to go without (e.g. google camera or maps)Have you found ways to limit or neuter the Google Apps you continue to use?Does going with an AOSP build or a custom ROM mean you lose out on hardware optimizations or can’t take advantage of hardware features of pixel phones?How have you approached the trade-off of reasonable privacy vs usability/convenience of your google phone?Don’t feel limited to these questions or discussion points. I want to have an open, thoughtful, and reasonable debate, but lets keep things civil, and try to keep blood pressures low, avoid logical fallacies, and avoid conjecture or feeling to sure of ourselves :)Also, if you want to check out my companion post in a much less privacy and tech savvy subreddit see my post over at /r/android feel free to participate but don’t be a dick, don’t be disrespectful and don’t shut people down (be gentle the general public is still rather naive/uninformed regarding privacy) 🙂

Less Spyware-y Alternatives to BitDefender for…

Hi everyone,​I’m wondering if someone can recommend me a macOS anti-virus software which works well, and does not force me to send system information back to its creator, like, you know, spyware does.​I’m asking because I recently bought BitDefender since it’s consistently well-rated and was 50% off last month. To my horror, there’s no way to disable the fact that when it scans your computer locally and finds something it doesn’t like, it reports this back to BitDefender where the information is kept, as I understand it from their privacy policy, for up to 10 years. This is absurd and in no way necessary for the product to function as an anti-virus. Also while detected threats are shown on the web console the privacy policy does not state very clearly what other information might also be collected. And there’s no way to turn any of this off. Needless to say I’m already ready to file a GDPR complaint.​Anyway, can anyone recommend me a good macOS security suite, preferably which isn’t wrapped in shit? This seems to be the norm these days, as I read good things about Sophos too, but it seems to do the same thing with an exclusively web-based control panel.​Thanks!
