Are you using lineageOS? You should check the options of your phone app. You might want to change them from their defaults to these. So your search query isn't send to google...

@cy Wtf how was that enabled by default? Just deactivated all of them

@cy Or even better, setup a firewall and disable the internet access to apps who don't need it.

@cy I think you can choose to use OSM instead of Google.

Either way, I have no idea what this feature does, because I never had it enabled.

I always forget to do this on a new device for, like, a year. It was around in Cyanogen too

@cy Good catch! Is that a known issue to the project?
