As announced in January, we looked at the /e/ Android ROM, provided by the /e/ Foundation:

infosec-handbook.eu/blog/e-fou

– it isn't completely "ungoogled" as promised
– some traffic of preinstalled apps is unencrypted and contains personal data
– the security of their website is in great need of improvement

@infosechandbook Might be a good idea to tag @gael, so he can comment on findings.

@infosechandbook Is it possible to prevent data leakage by disabling or just not using the weather and map apps?

@blurakkun @infosechandbook Did you have a look at LineageOS, too? What I learned, there are some issues: Reverse lookup of phone number, captive portal checks, kuketz-blog.de/lineageos-propr.
Until now, I did not find an article covering all of the above. My impression is, that LineageOS team is more about fighting planned obsolescence than caring about user privacy.
