    I love how these newer generation News Anchors are like "OMG! WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS!". Yes WE KNOW that we are giving up our Information, when we consent to their Terms of Agreement. I'ts been that way for YEARS! HELLO!!! The Media is SO DUMB!

    I's funny that they only talk about Android phones tracking it's user when Iphones do exactly the same thing. Every phone and every app that we used is tracking our movements, search and personal connections every second. All these companies are worst than the government.

    So many ignorant and absolutely deluded people in these comments acting like this isn't a big deal because you have "nothing to hide." Google is weaponizing YOUR data and using it AGAINST you. At what point are you brain dead idiots going to wake up and actually realize the implications of this?

    What advice are you giving us with Android phones??

    This is obviously biased towards apple products. I'm pretty sure Apple's products track your location too

    Have you ever heard of the "Find my phone" feature and "fitness tracker"? Who knew they would record the phone location in case you lost it and records your steps so you can get fit? There is no mention that you have to opt in to the location services when you start the phone for the first time and no mention that Apple do the same thing.

    ALL PHONES ARE TRACKING YOU. Apple, Android, and everything else.

    Really!? I mean come on people we’ve known about this for years. All phones do and it’s not any secret. Your Amazon Alexa, your laptop, even your smart tv. Stop being so foolish and in the dark about this.

    If they really want to know that I went to the supermarket last night and jibber jabber to my friends about boring my life and to typical problems I'd say make a large pot of coffee and pray you don't fall asleep.

    So, how exactly is this good info?

    Most Android users are aware xD We know that our android devices have censors that can detect our every movement, can know our location offline (That's why I use my maps offline, really helpful), and it's very helpful.

  26. Avatar

    That's why I have an iPhone. They do everything legit. No tracking or anything. Just a good honest company that always puts customers first…Smh yeah right. They all have been doing this. People need to realize. The internet was not made for us, phones are tracking devices and social media is the feds candy shop. Social media is a web that keeps track of every idea, relationship, and movement of its user.

    Yall forgot iPhones too😁🙄🙄

    Duh. Why you get iOS, at least they only collect information on you to sell you their products. Android was a trojan horse to a person's privacy. Sadly , YouTube is no better than the Chrome browser, Google search engine or Gmail. Amazon is no better. Full disclosure: I was an early advocate of Android/Google until I learned of the slippery slope that they're on. Imagine advertising getting so sinister that they subtly modify your search results over a period of time, to nudge you to purchase a product, something you wouldn't have ever bought/considered but now it's instead an original idea and you have always wanted it; thought what Russia did was bad?

    This video is incredibly wreckless and irresponsible. These sensors are incredibly important for the safety of the user. As an example, the baramoter sensor is crucial so that the Rapid SOS network can relay this information to 911 services if the user is in an elevated location, this is crucial information for first responders. The speed you were traveling just before you called 911 can also be super crucial.
    Yet! With so this information readily published by the FCC of what's required for carriers, you all mentioned none of that!
    Like another comentor posted, this was a definite hit piece on Android; while it may be a perfect mobile platform it has evened the playing field for so many across the world, giving people access to financial services, education and staying in touch. For those reasons, I will anyways back it as being a superior mobile platform.
