Is it actually possible to find Apps to replace basic functions on an android phone so google can no longer data mine? I assume if I put any third party app to replace android functions that I then have others data mining?
I use Proton VPN, and Email where I store contacts, plus VPN has new additions for calendar and documents. I assume these are 100% protected from data mining.
Also use Signal which I assume is safe from google data mining? (except they go to a friends common android messaging. )
Even if I unlock and root and install a third party launcher that doesn’t use any android apps will google still be able to data mine?
