I'm not enough of a refusenik to eschew Android entirely, but I long ago turned off Location History and Web and App Activity when it became both creepy and annoying. Maps, of course, constantly badgers me about reenabling the latter in particular, so I filed a bug report with the Maps team telling their product manager to stop smoking crack. I guess I can join the class action suit now and receive my pittance of a settlement in ten years or so.

As ever, allow me to also insert a plug for Blokada.
