That's why I said many of the services we use need some form of tracking. Obviously, if you don't use them, you don't need them on your phone.

My phone is like a desktop computer in my pocket. So when out and about I can still work when I need to, answer emails, run a forum, admin Facebook groups, use it as a satnav and generally look up anything I need to.

If all you need is a basic phone for emergencies, you won't be tracked until it is turned on. Although technically it could still be tracked. It would need to be hacked with malware for that, which is extremely unlikely if it is not a smartphone.

For me, the tradeoff between privacy and usefulness is heavily weighted in favour of usefulness. We should not "need" to make that compromise but it is the world we live in and it is not going to change.

Yes Saul, I am fine. The problem is that there are plenty of things going in my life lately, not COVID related, luckily. And my online time has been severely affected. I keep playing the piano and keyboards, if not all the time I would like.

I hope life goes back to a more usual one in few months... let's see! :dance:

Best wishes,

Jose
