you might not have known this, but google - the company you use for searching, email, maps, translation, data storage, watching videos, voice assistant tech, backing up your phone, storing photos, finding images, making purchases, making your phone's operating system, advertising, providing webfonts, running website analytics, providing captcha authentication, and browsing the internet - might be tracking you

@andreas @lynnesbian God. I'm staying in a home where the techbro roommate insists on using Google WiFi. :///

@andreas @lynnesbian He might be more just the Gamer™ roommate the more I think about it.

@awmwrites @andreas @lynnesbian Sorry. A "socialist". He hates communism and seems to just want better welfare solutions in capitalism, though. He also seems to seriously underestimate the effects of systemic oppression.

@slightlyflightyone @lynnesbian that that case, i'd treat your home WiFi like a hostile network since you don't have shared control, and use a VPN

@lynnesbian in regards to Google Home (, my wife's nephew-in-law knows only a few words so far, and of course one of them is "Google" since he's growing up with the "Home" 😵
