actually huats theres to bes afraids of?
billions of ppls giving data to thems, dont thinks they so frees to tracks individuals persons
Sure many apps does that. I’m okay to let them use my data if they ask. But if they don’t ask, I don’t really like it. It’s scary.

I try to avoid as much.

It’s about privacy, admits that some private data can be freely (with ones consent) share, but you would rather people ask you first before they can see it instead keep watching you.

Some people also say no big deal, want to see see lo. I have nothing to hide or so... then can one share his Nric, payslip credit cards Or bank account or medical history? If yes, pleas post it on social media

Well I can’t help but to comment here seeing this smart Alec post.
There is a big difference between posting own nric etc compare just sharing gender, preference etc.
I myself have been using Apple products for many years but don’t consider myself as Apple fan. But if you think Apple can protect you from everything including data privacy, good luck on this.
If I’m playing online game and see such comment, I will saying it’s retard. But here, I will just say it is plain stupid.

I was referring to Windows Mobile. And yes, I use DuckDuckGo, together with Vivaldi browser and the privacy extensions etc. In fact, I have reduced my use of FB too. No Google docs or tracking on YouTube either.

Some will call me paranoid but I don't need Google and FB to know even more about me than I do myself.
I am trying to reduce dependent on Google as well.
There are few times ,me and my friend was talking about new games on WhatsApp.next day, those games appears on my facebook.i didn't even do a search on Google but they managed captured and show the related advertisment.not sure is it the voice permission given to various app or Whatsapp sold me. So I disabled my Google. Voice and voice anything related to Google.

The blind faith in Apple as a company and that their apple devices are superior to other smartphones at any time.

And stuff like "it just works", "iPhone won't lag".

That said, the apple usb c to headphone jack adapter is really good.

apple is no longer the innovative brand i know, they are way behind now, playing the catch up game most of the time. plus their handsets are really expensive, unreachable. I couldn't believe i once paid nearly 1k WITH contract to get a iphone x at launch in 2018. Lucky apple resale value is high and i managed to sold it at the price i got it. Went to huawei and never look back..

Likewise i moved on from X to OnePlus

The 50% savings i can buy iPad pro. Best of both worlds
