"When the product is free, the product is you," a phrase that you have probably heard more than once. Google offers us a lot of useful tools (mail, browser, calendar, etc.) in exchange for "not worrying" a bit about our privacy.
If you are looking for alternatives to Google products, No More Google is a simple web page that has a list of alternative services divided by each of the tools they replace:
- Google Chrome
- Google Search
- Google Chrome Passwords
- Google Docs
- Google Sheets
- Google Maps
- Google Drive
- Google Flights
- Google Hangouts
- Google images
- Google Translate
- Google Weather
This list is based on a thread published in Hacker News, and its name is inspired by 'No More MacBook': a website that recommends alternatives to laptops Apple.
The creators of this website ensure that it is intended for those users who are worried about their privacy. In this list we find names as well known as Firefox, Brave, Vivaldi, Duck Duck Go, LastPass, ProtonMail, Bear Writer, Vimeo or 1Password.
Anyway, there are also less known tools, so it's a good idea to meet new applications. It is clear that Google uses our data for your benefit, and we have to deal with advertising on many of these services.
The problem is that it is very difficult to compete with tools such as YouTube, Gmail or Google Maps. Most users prefer to deal with ads or access our data in exchange for being able to use them.
