How to thwart (Google’s) tracking during COVID-19

We'll make the virus go away, if you give us your data.


Coronavirus lockdowns could end in months if Australians are willing to have their movements monitored

Your privacy and security is second to none, where no government or corporation will cherish it, especially when we know that (for example) Google passes on your details to your ‘adversaries’.

It has been made quite clear that governments will use location services to track you during these ‘virus times’ whether you are infected or not.

Governments and corporations are pushing ‘consumers’ i.e. the commoners to use their smartphones for a large range of services including government services like social security, which realistically do not need to function via an app.

Information Technology technical journals have also mentioned that governments use apps with ‘malicious’ code, to the end user’s detriment.

Smartphones are promoted to be used as a user’s primary internet connected device, as they are literally data sives, where an app can obtain all sorts of personal and private information without the user’s knowledge even though permission may not have been granted by the end user.

The ‘cat is out of the bag’ with Google still being able to track you via Bluetooth even though you have turned it off.

During this pandemic, the authorities of the colony called Australia, have shown that they cannot be trusted, where now they apparently state the you will be asked to ‘volunteer’ your location via the coronavirus app.

Well first and foremost, you should never download the coroavirus app.

Google can STILL track you even if you turn off Bluetooth,

Even if your ‘location services’ (i.e. satellite tracking) is switched off, your location can be obtained via tower triangulation

There is a deliberate reason as to why consumers have only a duopoly (Apple and Google’s operating system) to choose from when it comes to smartphones, and that’s primarily for surveillance purposes of the masses.

In order to minimise your tracking, you should leave your phone at home, turn it off or remove the battery if you have the ability to do so.

If you must communicate to others while on the go, try using a 3G phone, which still can be used on Australian mobile networks, also keeping in mind to turn it off or remove the battery when not needed.

At least then you will not leave ‘bread crumbs’ on your phone, via the Android or iOS operating systems where only tower triangulation will establish your whereabouts.

If you MUST use a smartphone, there are alternatives to Apple’s and Google’s operating systems, where some solutions are easy for the ‘average’ consumer and others require a certain amount of technical skill.

In any event to NOT download the ‘cororavirus app’ that the government may recommend.
