Not surprised by the top offenders at all, but I am surprised by Netflix, considering their size. I guess they don’t have an incentive to track users, unlike Google/FB.

Yeah, they have a proper business model. You pay - they deliver a straight forward product and everyone is happy. Still put the Netflix app in Shelter. Can’t trust them too much…

What’s Shelter? Some containerization tool?

Yes, it enables the use of a work profile on your android phone, so you have separation between sensitive and etheical apps and closed source tracking hells (if you necessarily have to have those)

Shelter is a Free and Open-Source (FOSS) app that leverages the “Work Profile” feature of Android to provide an isolated space that you can install or clone apps into.

So I guess it’s like builtin multiple accounts/users? Does it have better integration, like not having to switch between them accounts to use individual apps?

Yeah, you should be able to launch the “work apps” rather seamlessly. In the status bar, a briefcase-icon will show up to indicate that you’re in your work profile and that’s about it.

it kind of depends on the launcher how it works exactly, though.
In KISS launcher, my personal and work apps are all in the same list with the work apps getting that same briefcase-icon as a badge (if I’m using the default icon pack), whereas the Trebuchet launcher has separate tabs for personal and work apps.

yet another reason to leave reddit… but unfortunately, there still seems to be no good free alternative for Duolingo

Just get a textbook (with a CD) if you want to learn a language
