I'm someone who has become more and more privacy conscious in the last couple of years. I swapped away from Windows to Linux in January and have been trying to minimize data collection as much as possible the last few months. I've become quite interested in GrapheneOS and I've read the FAQ and watched a few videos, but I have some lingering questions.
Is there a way to check app compatibility before making the switch? I use Bank of America and while there is a list of banking apps that work on Graphene, I haven't found anyone who has tested BofA specifically.
Second, I have to use WhatsApp for family chats and communicating with people overseas. I also use Snapchat to stay in touch with college friends and I don't think it's practical to badger them into switching to another more privacy conscious group chatting app. I understand that those closed source apps have telemetry baked in that cannot be removed. If I am going to be using Snapchat and Whatsapp anyway, is it still worth it to jump to GrapheneOS? I know in a sense this is subjective but I can't help but feel I'm installing a steel plated ship and drilling hole into it.
Please forgive me if these are silly questions, I'm not super technical and trying my best to make sure I'm making the right decision.
