users ... Have you reset your advertising id lately? It's the persistent unique identifier used by Google play apps to identify/profile users and devices for targeted advertising. (iOS also has something similar)

@simon that's not privacy. That is a "reset my needs but keep the old one" button.

+ is the basic thing to have something close to privacy.

Sorry for ruining your day...

@nitox i'm not under any illusions and agree with your statement, but this is still something that android/ios users can do in the meantime to reduce the obvious tracking

@simon I don't like ads whether targeted or mistargeted
