(Finally I realized, this wasn't to enforce an anti fascist agenda, it was all about control)

I think all the Mastodon instance admins should write an open letter to Google to complain about this.

And promote F-droid at the same time.


@rick_777 @freemo Wow that's very worrying.. Perhaps we need to do that yes. I wonder if Apple will follow..

This is one of the reasons why Linux phones are important. IMHO using LineageOS or any other AOSP-based OS (whenever possible) isn't even sufficient, because they are still based on technology controlled by Google. We need to be completely free of Google and Apple on mobile phones.

Of course, I own a #Pinephone #UBports Community Edition. I have been almost Android-free for a year, at least mobility-wise, using #UbuntuTouch on a used compatible phone. Unfortunately I still have to rely on an Android authentication app to log in to my employer's VPN from home.

I intend on testing postmarketOS at some point.
