Calm Down — Your Phone Isn’t Listening to Your Conversations. It’s Just Tracking Everything You Type, Every App You Use, Every Website You Visit, and Everywhere You Go in the Physical World. “So don’t even worry about it.”

I’m going to sound like an Apple fanboy here, but that’s why use their products and platforms. There are a lot of smart security things on by default! I also enable all the security things I can - hide my email, do not track, private relay, etc. I trust Apple doesn’t track this and sell it to others as it’s not in their business model. I also appreciate the work they have put into third party apps and declarations on what is being tracked. Not perfect. Nothing is, but I sleep in relative peace.
