आपके फ़ोन से कितना डेटा जाता है Google/Apple के पास?

हर 4.5 मिनट में ‘खेल’

How Much data your phone sends to Google or Apple

फोन स्टार्ट करने के शुरुआती 10 मिनट में

Android Phone to Google – 1MB
iPhone to Apple – 42 KB

जब फोन बिना इस्तेमाल के पड़ा हुआ हो — ऐसे हालात में हर 12 घंटे में

Android Phone to Google – 1MB
iPhone to Apple – 52 KB

फोन इस्तेमाल न हो तब भी कंपनी से हर 4.5 मिनट में डेटा संपर्क होता है

Android Phone to Google – every 4.5 mins
iPhone to Apple – every 4.5 mins

शरीफ़ कोई नहीं है लेकिन Google में डेटा की भूख ज़्यादा है, Apple से 20 गुना ज़्यादा डेटा Google के पास जाता है

आगे बढ़ने से पहले — आश्चर्य प्रदर्शन

We investigate what data iOS on an iPhone shares with Apple and what data Google Android on a Pixel phone shares with Google. We find that even when minimally configured and the handset is idle both iOS and Google Android share data with Apple/Google on average every 4.5 mins. The phone IMEI, hardware serial number, SIM serial number and IMSI, handset phone number etc are shared with Apple and Google. Both iOS and Google Android transmit telemetry, despite the user explicitly opting out of this. When a SIM is inserted both iOS and Google Android send details to Apple/Google. iOS sends the MAC addresses of nearby devices, e.g. other handsets and the home gateway, to Apple together with their GPS location. Users have no opt out from this and currently there are few, if any, realistic options for preventing this data sharing.


ध्यान देने वाला हिस्सा

During the first 10 minutes of startup the Pixel handset sends around 1MB of data to Google compared with the iPhone sending around 42KB of data to Apple. When the handsets are sitting idle the Pixel sends roughly 1MB of data to Google every 12 hours compared with the iPhone sending 52KB to Apple

Google collects around 20 times more handset data than Apple.

In 2020 it is estimated that in the US there are 113M iPhone users2 and 129M Android users3. Assuming all of the Android users have Google Play Services enabled then scaling up our measurements suggests that in the US alone Apple collects around 5.8GB of handset data every 12 hours while Google collects around 1.3TB of handset data. When the handset is idle the average time between iOS connections to Apple is 264 seconds, while Google Android connects to Google on average every 255 seconds i.e. both operating systems connect to their back-end servers on average every 4.5 minutes even when the handset is not being used.
