Why am I not suprised
@danslerush I'm not sure I understand the claim. Are they saying I build an app with firebase and a user that has turned off ‘Web & App Activity’ in Google settings then I shouldn't get their data when they use my app? Seems wrong.
Although maybe it's actually saying Google are reading the data of my app I built with firebase? That definitely seems a bad thing for Google to be doing but not particularly surprising
@danslerush I cannot WAIT for a cost effective consumer ready Linux smartphone.
