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.

@drwho this has been a very helpful attitude to have. I've really learned it the hard way, which probably helps!

@calculsoberic It helps, but it also sucks that it had to be the hard way.

@drwho Yeah, unfortunately. I got doxed and had my identity stolen.
