Should we use Flutter?

Hello,
I am starting to develop a mobile application with Flutter. After installing Flutter, the Welcome to Flutter screen greeted me.

It seems that installing Flutter implies accepting Google’s Terms of Service. Even if we run the commands:

flutter --disable-analytics
flutter config --no-analytics

will that be sufficient for privacy-conscious individuals like us? Is it appropriate to use Flutter for those who prioritize privacy?

Despite being open source, is Flutter considered insecure?

These sorts of developer products don’t have anything to really worry about.

The analytics that is there will be for crash reporting and not anything related to their advertising products. It’s pretty specific what is collected:

If it bothers you, just opt out and use the switch as it indicates is an option.
