- Open Source apps(FOSS)
Say bye to tracking and Phoning home apps. Open Source apps(FOSS) are developed by communities from around the world which you can download and use just like downloading from Google Playstore.
Open Source apps are also known as Free and open source(FOSS)
You must download these apps from the trusted sites like F-droid. You will find hundreds of fake/pirated apps with similar names in Google search.
The good thing about Open Source apps are codes. Anyone can go through the code for a particular app he/she want to download and make sure that app is clean and do not have any malicious coding.
