@kensanata the only mitigation I've found to this problem is Lineage OS (android) on OnePlus with no google services and my own vpn on all the time. It went very well for 2 years but now I'm starting having troubles because more and more developers rely on the damn Google Play service.
However, still usable with some down sides which I consider better than giving away my soul
