Whenever I plan a trip to a new country, the first thing I research are prepaid SIMs. Messaging family, urgent work matters, on-the-spot research, all of

I wonder whether there are any privacy differences between an eSIM, and an actual SIM?

It’s probably easier to determine who bought the eSIM for 3-letters agencies.

In some countries you’re able to buy a SIM card without providing your personal info, and you can reload them using prepaid card that you can buy cash at the store, making it harder to identify the actual user.

You cant just remove sim card from esim :D
