I am finally totally Google free. And by that I mean as free as I can be, because this website is on Google’s Blogger service and I also need Youtube where I have my video channel.
But everything else I have got rid of. Instead of Google Search I use Duck Duck Go, and I use Apple Maps instead of Google Maps, Apple Mail instead of Gmail, Apple Calendar instead of Google Calendar and Apple Safari instead of Google Chrome, as some examples.
If you want a better privacy, then I highly recommend you to get rid of Google. Start with switching to the iPhone from your Android phone, because that’s necessary to be able to do this. You simply can’t be Google free on an Android phone. Trust me, I know because I’ve tried.
Apple doesn’t track you, Apple doesn’t collect any user data, everything your iPhone knows about you, stays on your phone. Nothing is sent to Apple. Apple doesn’t have to collect data about you as Google does. Because they don’t have that as a business model as Google does.
