Redditors Are Cutting Out Google From Their Lives, But Can Someone Tell Them It's Not Possible?

Have you ever imagined surviving on the internet without Google? Don't bother if you haven't, because it's not as easy as it sounds. I mean, just think about it for a minute. 

If you're using a Google-owned Android phone, then you're already out because that phone is probably one of the first things you check in the morning after you've woken up. Even a lot of iOS apps rely on Google's services. You take an Uber to work, you're using Google Maps data. You open Safari browser, you're again using Google's Search engine by default. In fact, even a lot of news websites, which you trust, run Google-owned ad services.

Look, I can pull out a lot of examples like this, but the point that I am trying to make here is that Google is everywhere. It's really difficult to avoid Google, and there's no easy way around it.

That, however, isn't stopping a Reddit community from trying. 

A dedicated community which goes by 'r/deGoogle' on Reddit is filled with thousands of users trying to live a life without Google. The goal, apparently, is to try and avoid handing any personal information over to Google and its services.

The subreddit, at its core, looks like a dumping ground for various links to apps and services which you can use without relying on Google. Think of the subreddit like a collection of 'tips and tricks' for surviving on the internet without Google.

Is it really possible to cut out Google from your life?

The answer, unfortunately, is no. Yes, it's almost impossible to avoid Google without having a major effect on the way you use the internet.

Between all of its products, Google has billions of users. Besides the Google search engine and other services like YouTube, G-Suite, etc., you're looking at Google's presence in other domains like artificial intelligence, fibre internet, and more. Heck, the company just announced its entry into the world of gaming with Stadia.

Even if you manage to keep yourself away from these Google services, you're still relying on Google while using apps and services like Snapchat, Spotify, Pokemon Go. Why? Well, these services are all based on Google's Cloud platform. So as a netizen, you're relying heavily on Google in some way or the other.

Yes, it sounds a little terrifying considering how much Google knows about you and your day-to-day activities. Of course, there are ways to avoid Google and it's services up to an extent. 

However, if you choose to go that route, then you may have to make some serious alterations on the way you use the internet. In case you're interested, you can check out some ways with which you can cut out Google from your life here.
