I am not saying "over my dead body". I had an iPhone for many years and currently use a not rooted Android smart phone.

I partially agree with you in your first paragraph.
But in the second...

That's it. Start to end. You can delete the app. You can wipe any trace of the ID from your phone. The ID was never associated with you in any way. There is NO GPS logging.

Anyone see any holes in this?

Apart from "Google / Apple" and "The ID was never associated with you in any way." in such a little text? Seriously?

Several years and many articles / reports confirm that is a bit of an oximoron.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
