A week ago it appeared in the news that Google will be able to access and delete data you have stored on Google Drive or Google Photos, even though those accounts have not been used in more than 2 years. What an invasion of privacy, Google! Do you want my bank account too?
I feel that Google is increasingly intruding into my life. Google began as a tool, then it became more necessary “friend”, now, it’s an attempt of a symbiosis that chooses for me whether to delete my files or not.
Since that news came out I have been researching through DDG and I have seen that Google is perfectly expendable in our lives. For example, I didn’t know about Protonmail until last week, but it seems that it will stay in my life for a long time. As for Google Drive, I’ve been using Internxt Drive for months, a decentralised cloud storage. Can you advise me on more options to get rid of Youtube, Google Play (or secure apk sites), Google Duo and the whole world of Google?
