On a typical day, your smartphone sends personal data to Google Servers (*):
The „Digital Content Next“(*) study published in August 2018 by Prof. Douglas C. Schmidt, Vanderbilt University, shows that our mobile phones, even when using no Google service, connect to Google Servers tens of times per hour (91 times per hour for an Android mobile with a total amount of 11,6MB of data sent on a single day, and 51 times per hour for an iphone, corresponding to 5,7MB of data sent to Google servers).
