How to stop cell phone companies from secretly selling your info to advertisers

How to stop cell phone companies from secretly selling your info to advertisers

By on March 13, 2015 at 9:26 AM.

There’s a reason advertisers love Google so much. The company is better than any other when it comes to collecting information about you, its users, and then using that information to serve targeted advertisements on the websites you visit. In Google’s case, the trade-off is that you get to use all of its amazing software and all of its great services for free — how evil!

Of course, Google isn’t the only company that uses your browsing history and other private data to sell ads. More →

Google Wireless Carrier Android Bloatware

Another reason Android fans will love having Google as their wireless carrier

Another reason Android fans will love having Google as their wireless carrier

Anyone who has bought a non-Nexus Android phone through their wireless carrier has probably encountered a significant bloatware problem. It’s particularly bad when you buy a device through your carrier because it means that your device will come with potentially unwanted software from both your OEM and your wireless company, a one-two punch that will hurt your phone’s battery life and performance. Even worse, this bloatware is harder to remove than bloatware on PCs — if you have to do a factory reset of your device, for example, the bloatware will all come back even if you previously uninstalled it.
