    Hi Team,

    Hope you're doing well.

    I am very much concerned about phone privacy security. I felt that somebody peeping what I search in google chrome and same thing is appearing in facebook, instagram or vice versa. Privacy is utmost important in this current world. Please resolve this issue as soon as possible.

    Thanks,
    Ganesh K J

    If you are concerned by this, you should not use google, chrome and more less instagram and facebook

    I am not asking you to resolve issue. I am asking with OnePlus team.

    This is a community forum, not support.
    This is not a thing that oneplus need to solve, this is something that you need to change in your use. Find alternative apps instead of using the mentioned ones.
    But if you insist to bring this to oneplus attention, use the feedback page

    What are you even talking about? You felt somebody is peeping? How? Fix what?

    Google, Facebook, Microsoft and the like keep track of EVERYTHING you do, search, and upload. This is nothing new. You can disabled some tracking in your Google settings, but not all types of tracking

    The solution is easy :
    Don't use chrome, try brave or bromite instead.
    Don't use google search, try duckduckgo instead.
    Turn off google assistant.
    Turn off web/youtube/voice/location history in google activity settings
    Opt out of ad personalization.
    Opt out of user experience program

    OnePlus can't do anything against this. It's the software running on top doing this

    Even better:
    Do not use a smartphone, computer and internet...[e]1f609[/e]
    Go to the forest and live there.
    Because there are cameras everywhere that record you.
    Don't use debit cards or credit cards.
    You are registered everywhere, and everywhere they can watch you, haha [e]1f602[/e]
    It's the best for those cowards [e]1f61c[/e]

    I'm a privacy advocate. It's not a joke man. i run O2OS with a lot of Google and OnePlus packages uninstalled,and I took every google app's internet access with NetGuard.

    Agreed..!! Something wiered happened with me too. I always use my OnePlus device for internet banking and from past few days, My internet banking user id has been stolen, and someone is trying to login. Today afternoon, my bank blocked my internet banking user ID for multiple false attempts. I am pretty sure that, my ID has been leaked through my device because I never shared it with anyone, neither I used any other device for login.!! I am really worried with OnePlus now.

    This is probabily not the case,OnePlus implements a high security standard. You have probabily been scammed.

    Brother, words like "high security standard" can not be used with android devices, they are meant for apple users only. When it comes to OnePlus, try googling about how many times OnePlus has stolen data..!!

    There's a difference between (accidental) data leakage of personal details, like address, phone number, mail address, and stolen bank debit card data.
    Also, most banking apps use 2 factor authentication, so it's virtually impossible to "steal" your account. Unless somebody looses his/her physical card, that's a problem (or somebody steals your details)

    You are confusing privacy and security.
