1e2j6 I too feel that way sometimes but at the end of the day I know I want to stay the course. Few years ago I decided to take my privacy back and be in control best I could most possible without detrimental expertise degradation. There is price for everything, right, and if there is something I need, I would compromise but no more than I have to.
That's my stance and based on it I slowly been reconfiguring my services: moved to Proton, use Yubikey, use email aliases, use VPN, switch phone to GrapheneOS, stop all Google histories (location, web, app, etc.), use Brave, use PWA instead of apps - none of which really diminished much the ease and convivence of how I use web and apps. Yeah I have to enter passwords more frequently than 5 years ago but that's what password managers are for, right?
With that, I will have Google services installed on my phone as some apps will need it without which I will encounter inconveniences I'm not ok with, I will have Tasker and will give it most permissions for my automations. I know that's not perfect, but much much better than a before and that's trend I'd like to keep.
