(Note: This post has a lot of cursing and swearing in it, cause that's how pissed off they got me.)
If you're a typical online user, do you realize how much control Google now has over our lives? Google itself, Gmail, YouTube, Drive, Google Docs, Google Maps, Google Play, Android... If they wanted to, they could fuck up your entire day with one decision, and here's how they did to mine.
Just yesterday, I had a small emergency and had to check a reservation on a public computer in the office. But MOTHERFUCKING PIECE OF SHIT Google locked me out of logging into my email because "it wasn't a recognized computer." I'm sure you all had this fucking dogshit happen to you before! Where they then make you get out your fucking Android phone and "get Google's permission" to log into your own fucking Gmail account! My phone's battery was dead, though. And even if it wasn't, there was no WIFI or phone signal where I was. So basically, this piece of fucking shit company locks me out of my own Gmail account where I needed to get quick access to something on it. If I didn't a backup email through Outlook that forwards all Gmail through there, I'd have been screwed! Only, I almost never use it, hadn't logged in in months, and pretty much forgot about it until then.
I don't usually curse because I feel like it brings on bad mojo and negativity, but you should be able to tell how furious I was at Gmail always doing this CRAP! My FUCKING phone was unavailable and I Gmail always locks you out of any "unrecognized computers" cause they like to stalk you! It was AT THIS MOMENT I decided I needed to free myself of all Google websites. Gmail, the search engine itself, YouTube, Drive, Google Maps, Android, Google Play... These assholes have taken over our lives without us even realizing it! And with one decision, can fuck up our whole day because we "need Google's permission through our Android phones to log into our own Gmail accounts."
I've already been using DuckDuckGo for close to a year now after that "Men can [have babies, get pregnant, cry, lactate, get periods]" auto-complete progressive propaganda shit from earlier one in Google. Type in "Men can" and see the messed up shit they suggest for you. DuckDuckGo sucks, but I've been using it over Google. Now, I realized I need to purge them out of my life as much as possible. Sadly, I still need to rely on Drive, Google Maps (one of the few apps that can work offline) for work, and YouTube for entertainment, so I can't completely purge myself from Google in 2021. But I'm definitely through with Gmail after this incident. And I'm going to try to find a non-Apple smartphone that doesn't use Android.
Start purging Google out of your life as much as possible! Here are some alternatives:
DuckDuckGo or Yahoo! > Google (or Bing)
Outlook > Gmail
OneDrive > Google Drive
Bitchute > YouTube
Mapquest or Maps.me > Google Maps (or Waze)
MS Office or WPS Office > Google Docs
Various APK sites > Google Play
Blackberry (or IOS) > Android
