College graduate group chat, you know how it is, I can’t be that one guy out of the 200 to suggest them all to move over to something like telegram, signal, etc. Now I need a way to be able to use instagram on my android in the most safe way possible. Blocking all permissions, blocking ability to track my location, etc. I just wanna be able to chat and post.
Also important is that ,even if you are using a pwa , don’t be under false sense of privacy as you are still logging in (probably with your real name). Your friends have shared your number with instagram , so they have another data point of you. Even on a pwa , the groups you join , your interest will be indexed against your real identity.
So proceed ,while keeping in mind all these things.
I mean with how widespread the use of datahoarding social media is and how unconcerned most people are with privacy, using different phone numbers with people that know who you are just seems like a lost cause.
Now using one phone number for people and services that know who you are, and another for when you’re anonymous, that seems reasonable too me. There just seems too be too many failure points in the compartmentalisation in the first setup to be doable.
