'Facebook takes data from my phone – but I don't have an account!'

Re: Pages rule (again)

I'm quite shocked to see how many phones come pre-infected with this. I'm a long time Nexus and Pixel owner, so I guess I've had a sheltered and uninfected life.

It's been many years since I've allowed a FB app near my phone, I can't remember which update it was, but one of them pushed the permissions requests just a little too far and I said "nope".

So far I've managed to survive with just a mobile browser (although FB actively detect and nobble the website from the built in Android chrome browser and try to force the app - you just have top get a bit creative and install another browser, or customise the user_agent tag).
