The security community has just figured out that Lastpass' Android app has trackers built into it.

Of course it does. 90% of the stuff you get out of the Play Store, from any manufacturer, will have at least one (and usually more) trackers embedded in it.

That is part of the ecosystem. It is also baked into some of the more popular devkits out there, and the developers might not even know they're there.

Seriously, folks... assume that you are being tracked and monitored, and act accordingly. This is a logical and reasonable thing to assume in the 21st century until you prove otherwise to your own satisfaction.

This is why I use f-droid and publicly available sourced projects whenever possible. There's ways to deal with the trackers but the idea that one would need to do so at all is pretty darn silly.

@dukeofpearldiving I don't think it's silly at all. It was always the direction things were going in.

More data about users, as much as possible, let's get them to create more data for us was the trajectory.

The moment I found Blokada (which blocks stuff at the network level) I started using more stuff on my mobile, because it was blocking all the extra network traffic.

Does some of you eared about Exodus-Privacy (exodus-privacy.eu.org)?

Look at the reports (reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org), install (from F-Droid ou Gplay) Exodus apk (there is no trackers on it). Look at your installed applications and make your **OWN** choice.

@exodus

@LeJax @dukeofpearldiving @exodus It's news to me... looks easier to handle than tcpdump on my lab router.
