From Fast Company:

After I installed Seudo, the app claimed that TikTok was gathering minute-by-minute details on my network connection, which could help the social media app infer some form of location information. McDonald’s, meanwhile, appeared to be gathering all kinds of device data for tracking purposes, and several other apps, including Pandora and photo editor Lensa, were contacting Facebook for no clear reason.

If it is “free” then you are the product.

Surprising and frightening how the apps on our phones are spying on us. Even more disconcerting is how the buyers of this data use it with advanced algorithms and AI to determine all kinds of things about us. For example your income, your political affiliation whether you are pregnant and your sexual orientation. Are you Okay with that?
