If you are interested in examining the privacy implications of Android apps, there is google chrome extensions Exodus Privacy is a great tool. For example, it reveals these 19 trackers in Deezer and 9 trackers in Spotify (it seems you are tracked even if you pay €€€)
@Privacymatters Is there an alternative streaming service that doesn't do all this tracking?
@jon @Privacymatters Apple Music is the most respectful.
@Privacymatters How can you tell if the tracking is active even when you pay? I don't know about Deezer, but fur Spotify the ad-driven free version is the same app as the paid version, so it's not clear if the trackers remain active even for subscribers.
@Privacymatters Spotify is the worst; back when I had XPrivacy installed it constantly prompted me about Spotify wanting to phone to a third party.
@Privacymatters And how many trackers did it reveal in Chrome itself? If less than 3, I wouldn't trust that extension.
(and if you know say it didn't tell about Chrome at all, my answer is just: see? told ya, don't trust 🤣 )
Tsk, "Chrome" and "great privacy tool" in the same sentence. Can't work out.
