  1. The best way for me it to never have installed this Chinses controlled and data sharing app in the first place.
    Thanks for your excellent and detailed article for those that made the mistake of installing it.

  2. Best way to manage it is to just not install it.

    I wonder how much data the Chinese government has collected on users so far since it’s inception ………. it’s almost like no one is concerned about their privacy anymore …. smh
