Aurora Store isn’t “degoogled,” it’s literally just an alternative frontend to Play Store. Better to recommend an actual alternative, like F-Droid

This headline lies. (hence the down vote)

Aurora Store still uses the Google API, which is subject to copious tracking. You must have a Google acct (which in itself entails privacy abuse), you must login, and from there Google still tracks everything you do. Google still knows all the versions of all the apps you have, and thus knows everything you’re vulnerable to.

Google also records your IMEI number on file. If the API enforces that you’re hosed.

F-Droid is indeed the answer. If you don’t have the discipline or self-control to avoid Google, then Blackmart is still better than Aurora Store b/c you don’t need a Google acct.

You don’t need a Google account to use Aurora Store unless you’re buying apps.

    Welcome to ReverseEagle

    Let’s take an extra step forward to create a private, free, and healthy internet, and software that you can trust.

    We remove proprietary code from FOSS projects.

    Too many projects that claim to be a bastion of privacy have been overtaken by the influence of corporations.

    The whole idea of FOSS is being torn apart by companies who don’t have our best interests at heart.
