I wasn’t sure about the ‘validity’ of the c/c storage.
Like, worst case: I do whatever I can to keep the data safe, but by using mentioned storage I automatically allow aunty Google/WhatsApp/younameit to grab whatever is in there. By using another service or storage it would be at least more difficult or uncommon.
Best case: It’s just one service of many, living their lives in the white noise of the Android background processes 🙂 Then, by avoiding it, there would be no benefit at all.
If I interpret you right it’s closer to the best case - so I’ll use it as intended.
To look for a different OS (instead of continuously tweaking the stock one) is a good plan, thanks.
After I’m familiar with Nextcloud an my little server I’ll dive into it.
