I apologize in advance if these topics were discussed but I found nothing on this topic.
I am looking for an escape from google / apple and I found a sailfish os which I like very much, but in the free version, apart from calling and sending text messages, practically nothing else (somehow “ordinary” user writes it) is not suitable. If I buy a license, will applications such as Wrick ME, Protonmail and some duckduck or opera browser work normally? These are the necessary applications for me, the rest I do not care.
And from what he understands, sailfish doesn’t give permission like android google that has permission to do everything? What about the application’s permissions, if it installs, for example, whatsapp, all permissions (contacts, information, connections, etc.) work in the same way as on android? And is a google account necessary for android applications to work? If I add a google account in the settings, does google automatically have access to the entire content of the phone from sailfish?
I will be grateful for the answer and if the questions are incomprehensible, sorry but I don’t know English and I write it on the translator.
