Tried explaining the problem with Google Play Services (GPSe) on the Android platform to some of my colleagues and why you should use @Tutanota instead of ProtonMail.
One of them have now converted from Gmail to Tutanota and also considers Lineage OS. Others thought it was interesting but will probably continue using stock Android and Gmail.
I've dodged Microsoft's telemetry updates for Win 7 so far, but now they seem to include it in the security updates.
Fortunately we've got FOSS alternatives like #OpenWRT.
"we may collect ... mobile devices, sensor data, device signals, device parameters, device identifiers that may uniquely identify your devices, including your mobile device, web request, Internet Protocol address, LOCATION INFORMATION (INCLUDING LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE), PERFORMANCE DATA, MOTION DATA, TEMPERATURE DATA, POWER USAGE DATA, AND ANY DATA OR SIGNALS COLLECTED BY THE DEVICES AS PART OF THE USAGE DATA"
Kudos to @protonmail for replacing Google code analytics with self hosted alternative in the latest Android app update!
