Fake news instigated by Apple to combat falling iPhone sales!
<<<just kidding>>> Actually, one of the most worrisome things about Android is that ~any app has access to the contents of your clipboard. If you copy and paste anything in Android, don’t do it with any sensitive information (since I don’t yet have the latest Android Pie edition of Android, don’t know whether this has been fixed in Android 9.0).
I basically use my Android phone with the idea if I want to do anything secure like check my cell phone account, my bank account, or Quicken that the app makers have taken the necessary steps to secure usage within the app. I do almost all my online shopping and browsing on a computer where my ISP provider, the places I visit, etc., are all tracking my activities anyway - and I don’t feel that I’m doing anything that necessitates “in-private” browsing or a VPN to a Scandanavian country, etc.
