Privacy on mobile is kinda pointless. The device tracks you to within a meter, can be turned on remotely without you knowing and listens to you. They get the pages you visit from your provider and if anything you're helping them reveal TOR nodes since they can pick you up at every jump.

Mobile devices are like a foghorn saying here I am every five seconds. Just saying, you might want to reconsider your dependence on mobile if privacy matters to you.

Did you know that your mobile device helps facial recognition cameras in the wild better identify you? When it makes a guess after seeing you on a cam 5g will instantly allow it to see if your phone is in that area too. If it is, ID confirmed. I don't think it's possible to remain private on mobile.

lol, except that they are doing it to influence my political and financial habits, as well as to enrich themselves via their ad networks.

What's in it for me?
