Remember no bashing, even though they may steal your ID, money, free Internet and maybe your first born. :rofl:

Proof that we are no longer free but a product.

Think we all knew for a long time what they were up to. Glad to see this good news, a step in the right direction

I do not think that matters too much to Google. $5 billion is probably just a pocket money for them and most likely people who were “hurt” by this tracking will never see anything from this $5 billion. And people will soon forget this happened because it is still convinient to use google’s services.

Google has agreed to settle a $5 billion privacy lawsuit

This means they are not even paying 5 Billion they will be paying less that is what a settlement is.

This unfortunately is all to true. At the end of the day the masses just don’t care.

Then I suggest you start charging :grin: or you’ll stay broke

Just curious… hand up those are just trying to live without any google service (literally “at all” or almost in the limit of the possible).

I don’t really care if they use my data tbh, I use incognito a few times a year, when I’m too lazy to delete cookies. I kind of like google(not everything), they help with a lot of things in my day to day needs. Meta, amazon, microsoft and apple can burn in hell. I guess I’m a google fanboy.

Thinking like this is not good at all!

Privacy is the precursor of freedom

I use de-googled custom roms based on AOSP ( a Google project) on several mobile devices.
Using a dumb phone or an iphone is out of question for me.
Yeah, Google sucks, but in this respect it sucks much less than the alternatives.

May I have your Bank information please since you don’t care about your data.

For mobile, this is practical and understandable. I am quite close to getting rid of my Samsung device and buying a Pixel so that I can use GrapheneOS

I also use ‘ungoogled-chromium’ as a secondary browser on Arch and Debian, both. Better option than Brave if you ask me. Feels lighter than any firefox derivative.

I’ve had this conversation with many previously. One went as far as to say “ive got nothing to hide so why should I care” … This argument makes my brain do cartwheels out of frustration. I never understand that argument because it sounds like nothing short of ignorance. I know for sure they won’t be saying this when google rolls out a smart shower head that has a built-in camera sensor to automatically detect your naked body when you step in the shower and mic for voice control… Or who knows, maybe they will.

These corporations take two steps forward and one step back. That’s how they inch closer and closer to being a real life modern day SKYNET.

I’ve got nothing to hide, but that doesn’t mean I don’t value my fundamental rights. Rights are like muscles, if you don’t use them, you lose them.

This is the narrative the media is pushing. Why should you care if your not breaking the law. Such a purposefully narrow scope to flat out lie to people just like Google was just caught doing. Or they hide behind save the children or some other BS to destroy any chance of privacy you may attempt to acquire. Fact is that the individual will cease to exist you either conform or your punished. Forget notions of a Police state try a Police World.
