    Is true if you use nextdns and use a track blocker list it shows that even after you take it off the system do a user location ping 4 time's each hour even if you opt out of it use a dns to block it

    Well, Google is always going to deny and lie about it's data collecting habits.

    That's a given, and law can't do anything about it withing the confines of the internet.

    Only, real solution is to get rid of our fancy phones. And, maybe go back to the old phones, like the Nokia 5110.

    Otherwise, just accept our that our data will be exploited, always and matter what.

    In other words; suing the US gov, good luck!

    📱Those people who own Google phone products: should really follow and learn the tutorials, on how to adjust their location settings, for individual apps. 🤖 Once an app is given location permission in settings, permissions then needs to be turned off after used. ☕🍔 Also, you need to delete and secure your location history, in your Google account. 🐗 These are the same people, who tried to sue Google, when they found out that, anyone can see their web browsing history, unless they delete it. 🤭So embarrasing! 👊 The lawyers need quash/suppress, some of those states attacks/robbery of the technology industry, from California. 🔏

    It must be a penalty that stops this kind of behavior, a fine that is a thousand times whatever the profits were.

    Bob Ferguson and Jay Inslee are hard core corrupt. They probably don’t want their own locations tracked. Where’d the money go Google has already paid out in violations to WA state? 🤔

  • Tewthpaste on January 27, 2022

    Google: still able to track your location.

    ME: How? me no location turn on but google is still tracking my location using my internet provider service.
