    I do not see any need to associate one's email Id with a device - that's the surest way to identify someone and then track them.

    Never use ANY superfluous app. Uninstall or disable all of them - especially google's.

    I have only one google app turned-on - gdrive - and that's cause I need it to read PDFs. Am trying to find a way around this but so far no luck - all PDF viewers I know of are vulnerable*. I plan to use a sandbox or virtual machine to view PDFs on desk/laptop but there seems to be no secure way to read PDFs on mobile devices.

    Don't use ANY browser - all of them have tracking features or don't actively block tracking attempts. I have disabled all of them and use orfox. And that I downloaded from the Fdroid repository instead of google play store - cause google's a sneak.
