I tried a “de-Googled” Android phone for a week

On Android, it’s practically impossible to escape Google’s surveillance. Not only does an Android phone constantly share your whereabouts with Google, but it continues to do so even when it’s idle, and compared to iOS, it beams 20 times more data to Google. Because Google’s trackers are so deeply ingrained into Android, toggling the built-in privacy options doesn’t do you much good either. But what if you could “de-Google” your Android phone?

A French startup called iodé wants to offer you just that: a more private “de-Googled” alternative to the Android phones you’re used to. It sells refurbished phones in Europe that run a special Google-less version of Android– iodéOS.
