People start to wake up to the pervasive third-party tracking that comes with 90% of Android apps
Reset your advertising ID regularly – this won’t stop you from being tracked and profiled, but it can nonetheless temporarily limit the invasiveness of your profile. This can be found on most Android devices under, Settings > Google > Ads > Reset Advertising ID.

Limit ad personalization by opting out of ad personalization in the Android settings. This can be found on most Android devices under, Settings > Google > Ads > Opt out of personalized Advertising.

90% of the 959,000 apps from the US and UK Google Play stores that they studied had at least one tracker; 170,000 apps had more than twenty trackers.

Privacy International found that 61% of those 400,000 apps automatically transfer data to Facebook the moment a user opens them. This happens whether or not people have a Facebook account, and regardless of whether they are logged into Facebook or not. In addition, those apps send a unique identifier, the Google advertising ID, to Facebook. This is extremely problematic, because it renders data aggregation and the construction of data profiles much easier.

Bookmarked - 101: SIM Card Registration | Privacy International
Mandatory SIM card registration eradicates the potential for anonymity of communications, enables location-tracking, and simplifies communications surveillance and interception. It can also be used in conjunction with an IMSI catcher to know the possible identities of everyone in a particular area.
