    Yes, i understand. Use trusted open source apps, private DNS (I use pi-hole and AdguardDNS as backup, Session or Signal as a messenger (I prefer Session. Thats about as far as you can go on stock. (I use stock as mine won't keep TWRP installed as recovery and Magisk won't fully install im not sure why. Device: Moto G7 Play/T-Mobile REVVLRY) Further is adb uninstall all the bloat apps.

    Session. Its forked from Signal, requires no phone number or email for setup and is reliable. There's no voice support YET and I'm not sure if they'll add video call support, maybe one day.
