Not surprised to see Epic have a security breach.. That's why I use Steam.

Or just go the self hosted route. If you don't want to DIY then you can get something like this. Seems like a steep price off the cuff but think about what your time/data are worth. I've been tempted to get one of those a few times now and still might in the future.

Where would you go, protonmail?

That's exactly what i did. I use my phone like chickenboo and don't have a gmail account on it. Firefox with uMatrix, disconnect, ublock, cookie auto delete, vpn extensions etc.

I only use an old gmail account to run updates once a week and remove it when done. I don't use any app that requires a google account. That being said, wear os doesn't allow me to remove the account anymore, but I use a 3rd party app to access all my email accounts on the smartwatch. No google assistant or whatever it's called, no google fit, location is always disabled.

I never liked Chrome anyway. No big loss. I've also switched to DuckDuckGo almost exclusively.

Apple devices are supported far longer than any Android phone. Kinda makes the price a wash.

We have $200 android phones that are 6 years old at work, and they still get updates.

When does this price wash thing start?

Which $200 Android phones still get updates 6 years later? Which Android device at all get updates 6 years later? The fucking Nvidia Shield is better supported than most Android phones bwhahaha. Google now charges Apple prices for their own phones and gives shittier support. Samsung and etc all do the same. You aren't getting a flagship phone cheap anymore period and most of them have terrible support because of the Android fragmentation nonsense.

Apple actually has the best track record for mobile device support, iPhone 6s just got updated last year. And sure, they were up to some shit 3-4 years ago but the last few major iOS updates went the opposite route. For all of the shit Apple gets here they actually do pretty well by their users for the money.

So you’re saying KitKat/Lollipop devices are currently getting OS updates? Burden of proof is on you my friend...

What I think you mean is that Apple devices are supported for two years at which point they slow iOS down to a crawl for all but the most recent phones. Planned obsolescence.

That was the complaint with ios 11, (so far) hasn't happened since. I'd still take a slower phone with security updates, than yet another abandoned Android product.

At this point, if you're using any Google product (minus Android because, let's be honest, are you really going to use an iPhone at a ridiculous markup and their shitty iTunes to manage it on your average user's PC), you are one of two kinds of people: an idiot or you just don't give a shit about your privacy. One does not preclude the other.

When I asked, I either recommend Firefox or Brave. On mobile, my only suggestion is to download DuckDuckGo's app and use it since it is privacy oriented and doubles as both a search engine and a web browser.
